I made these for my littlest sister for Christmas, but I made them two weeks apart, so they're odd. I stole some basic ideas from http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21339.0, otherwise, I made it up on the spot. They have about the length of a hand palm of stuffing in the bottom, so they're all squishy inside.





What do you think? The bottom is made out of pleather, and it was a bum using the sewing machine to sew a 90deg oval, especially with all the fur, but I think they turned out quite well. And, my sister liked them.  Cheesy

those are cute! did you line them? (i just wondered cause usually fur is scratchy on the back!)

how many pieces are there of the fur? is the ankle part seperate? i can see the seam on the front of the foot, but i can't tell about the ankle...
(i'm full of questions! but they turned out awesome, and i'm super curious!)

Thanks Crafty_dame and merricat17!

I did line the boots, but I pretty much sewed some poplin to the outside lip, the made it into a sock looking thing, and stuffed it in there. They're a little difficult to put on, but still comfy once you do.

I took a rectangle of fur, cut a diagonal line of 13", sewed that line around the pleather, which gave it a kinda triangle shape. The big part was at the front, and the low part at the back. Because the remaining part was also triangular, I sewed the pointy end onto the ankle, bent down the pointy bit at the front, sewed the ends of the second triangle together at the front, then kinda just sewed everything else to make it boot like.

So in total (please ignore my rambling above - it helps me to think) - I used 4 pieces. 2 triangle Fur, 1 long rectangle Lining, 1 Foot, shaped around my own foot.
