I found this tutorial on UrbanThreads.com about how to make a pair of boots out of a knit sweater and ballet flats…. [link]
I wanna do that!! Instead of a knit sweater I used an old robe made out of fleece, so I had to adapt the process a little....
I had to widen the sleeves at the top to make them fit my calf as there wasn't as much stretch in the fabric.
Also, I wanted them to be purple and the dressing gown was cream and blue.... I tried dying them but the fabric didn't take the colour so I painted them! I used watered down acrylic paint and painted the cuff while it was flat, but the boots after they had been constructed.
I hand embroidered the star on the cuff, which too ages but looks just how I wanted it to. I added big black buttons for that almost Uggs look!
So here are my knee-high purple plaid boots! I love them and hope you do too!!!
