DIY Leather Embellished Loafers (Leather Couch Chronicles #10)

DIY embellished shoes

After the great response from my DIY Striped Loafers, I thought I would do another loafer tutorial. These DIY Embellished Shoes are great for the fall! And it's #10 in the Leather Couch Chronicles.

Upload the template to your Cricut Design Space. Next, upload your leather onto the cutting mat and click cut. P.S. If you don't have a Cricut Explore yet (I say yet because I totally recommend it. This thing makes your life so much easier!), you can just trace the template and cut the design by hand.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below! In case you are curious, here is Leather Couch Chronicles #11.

But wait there's more ... lol!  I feel like one of those infomercials! Cricut is giving away a special deal on the Cricut Explore® Iron-on Bundle. You get the Cricut Explore® which is what I used to create this project + four rolls of iron on. I have used the iron on vinyl for so many projects around here. It is amazing! It is normally $355.95, but they are selling it for $269.99. That's like almost $100 off!
