I love to wear boots! I bought an inexpensive pair of boots last winter that turned out to be crazy comfortable. Unfortunately, because they *were* cheap, the upper started to fall apart. Rather than give up on my favorite boots, I decided to update them. With a little paint and a bit of Cuddle fabric, my boots look new again!
- Boots – on hand
- Paint – on hand
- Rose Cuddle – $2.50 for quarter yard on Etsy
- Glue – on hand
Total: $2.50 and up
Step one: Clean the boots and paint the lower the color you want. I used So Soft Fabric paint because it doesn’t crack and is made to work on fabric.
Step two: Cut the fabric to fit the cuff of the boot. I used Cuddle Fabric because it looks great and it doesn’t need to be hemmed. All I had to do was sew the ends together to make a tube.
Step three: Slide the fabric over the boot. Use fabric glue or super glue to adhere the fabric to the top of the boots. I held it in place with mini clothespins. I also added some glue to the bottom of the fabric to keep it from sliding up when I wear them.
I love metallics and bright colors, but you could make yours a lot less flashy than I did by using different colors. I’ve hardly worn my boots because my youngest two keep stealing them and wearing them around the house. They love the super soft fabric and asked me to make them some boots, too!
