so i saw the sweater boots, and i just HAD to have a pair, ill still be making a pair out of sweater material, but i figured if give er a go with this polar fleecy stuff. its only one sided, so its not full fleece Sad

i hand stitched the tongue of the shoe to the side, and i also glued it. just to make sure it was going to stay.

a heel insert that i made just so it was softer cuz the shoes are really worn out. thus the reason they were made into boots Tongue

the shoe before i started glueing

glueing it to the shoe. and i didnt cut the shoe at all.

finished product!!!

tell me what you guys think.. im also sewing some little cherries at the back of the boot.. just to give em a cute edge Wink ill post those pics on too.. took me a total of about 2.5 hours to whip these puppies up..

groovy carpet eh Tongue

alas, the cherries Smiley

That's so neat!  Maybe when my fave shoes di I need to make them into sweatery/fleecey boots!

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

what did u use to stick ? crazy glue glue gun?? is it holdin up?
« Reply #5 on: September 14, 2007 08:53:40 PM »

i used a hot glue gun, and its holding up pretty good.. the only problem is i remember why i didnt fully wear out those shoes, theyre too small.. i wore them to work the other day, and half way through the day i had to change them, my feet were killing me. so im not sure what im doing with them then, i mean, theyre obviously original, so im thinking of selling them or something.. i dunno.
