Introduction: Upcycled Sweater BootsWhat do you get if you mix and old sweater, some cheap flat shoes, and lots of hot glue? Sweater boots, that’s what!Step 1: The SuppliesTo make your boots, you’ll need a big bulky sweater with nice large sleeves, some cheap flat shoes, a hot glue gun, and some buttons, as well as a sewing machine and a needle and thread. I machine embroidered my boots as well, but it’s not necessary, just awesome :)Step 2: Fitting Your BootsSnip off the sleeves where they meet the sweater, flip them inside out,
and slide them up your leg, sweater cuff first. Slip on one of your flats, and then stretch the sleeve to form to your leg, while keeping the edges wrapped around the shoe. This will give it a nice boot shape, instead of a big slouchy triangle. This can be a bit challenging, but those cheap flat shoes are pretty bendable, which helps quite a bit. We’re going to use the finished bottom edge as the bottom edge of our cuff. Snip it in half, and use the pieces to wrap around your leg. Measure how much you need, pin, and cut it to size. If you have embroidery, make sure it’s facing the way you want it to once it’s turned right side out again. Pin the edges together, and sew a seam around the top. You might want to reinforce this seam a few times, since this will be the part of the boot that will be tugged on the most.
These look great!
