Customizing your Vans with Embroidered rose patch
- Plug your iron into the mains
Now, stuff the pieces of clothes inside the sneakers to give you a firm surface to work with. Stuff in as many pieces until you are satisfied with the firmness of the Vans.
While the iron is heating up, arrange the rose patch on the outside quarter of your Vans. Adjust the patch until you are satisfied with the position.
Get a section of the towel wet with water. You can use the spray bottle containing water to get the towel wet.
Cover the rose patch with the wet towel.
When the iron is hot, place it firmly on the wet portion of the towel covering the patch. Hold it in position for about 15 seconds. Repeat this about two more times.
Remove the pieces of cloths inside your sneakers. Wet the towel with the spray can; place it inside the shoe directly under the rose patch. Rest the shoe on its side on your work table.
Repeat step 6 for the inside of the shoe.
Repeat all the steps for the second Vans.
That is all. You now have your own Vans with embroidered rose patch.
Don’t be alarmed that the patch wouldn’t stick to your Vans. The rose patch was already smeared with the right sort of glue by the makers. That is why you don’t need to buy glue again. The heat from the iron does the basic job of melting the dried glue so the rose patch sticks to the surface of the Vans.
Enjoy your new-look Vans.
