DIY baby booties are the perfect introduction to baby Cricut projects. All you need to do is add iron-on vinyl to plain booties! You can also do this project with onesies, bibs, or anything else a baby uses! Make them funny with our cute design or create your own design as well. Either way, the parents-to-be are sure to love these cute little shoes for their little one. If you are searching for the perfect DIY baby gift, this project is for you!
These adorable little shoes are great for baby showers, gender reveals, or just a fun gift for a little one in your life. I love adding iron-on to odd surfaces like these. If you are concerned about the item you want to use, you can read more about all of the materials that iron-on can be used on by clicking here.
Using a Cricut machine is a great way to create a unique gift for a baby. You can use your own creativity to come up with funny sayings, quotes, or monograms. Plus, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make the gift special.
There are plenty of Cricut dollar store options, like onesies, bibs, blankets, and anything else a baby could need. If booties aren’t your thing, use the same steps below for any other baby item you choose.

Steps to make baby cricut projects:
I made a Cricut cut file for baby booties. Download the file or make your own version.
Resize the file to fit the size of the shoes you are using for this project. Then, mirror it before cutting the design away from the iron-on. Don’t forget to always cut with the iron-on shiny side down.
After the design has been cut, weed away the excess from the outside and the centers of the letters. I like to use weeding tool to make this easier, but they are not a must.
Then just position your design on the bottom of the shoes and use the EasyPress or an iron to press for the recommended amount of time. I find that using a scraper or flat edge to press the design down after it has been heated helps it to adhere well.
Then, remove your carrier sheet and your DIY baby booties are complete!
