I'd like to glue gun some soft knitting on the inside (like a rectangle going around her leg) so that they are warm and them possible somethign stenciled? the thing is, WHAT? and with what medium? it would have to be mud and scrub proof and i cant think of anything! the boots will be rubber and probably green? not too sure yet!

For the inside how about a removable fleece fabric liner?  Instead of hot glue (which I also wanted to say probably isn't a strong or durable enough adhesive for lining work boots) you could put velcro along the inside of the boot and outside of the liner and then the liner can be removed for washing (be sure to include some extra pieces of the velcro opposite side so the velcro on the liner can be covered before washing so the fabric doesn't stick to the velcro).  With a removable liner the wellys can be washed thoroughly inside and out.

As for the outside...hmmm.  Maybe stencil something using a paint that's made for non-porous surfaces?

Acrylic paint might work, but I don't know if it would peel off wellies cos of the plastic it has to stick to. Have you done them yet? Pls post piccy if u have
