Hello fellow craftsters!  Good-bye over worn $300 trendy UGGS!

Now you can make your own "Fashion Flair Boudoir Boots.

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/cedu/diy/diy_boot_004.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------
You will need:
 - 1 yard 36 inch wide fabric
 - 1 pair of soft slipper soles
 - 5 yards 1/2inch seam tape
 - Matching sewing thread
 - 2 sheets of brown paper at least 12 inches X 16inches
 - Pencil
 - Ruler
 - Scissors
-------------------------------------------------------------
Suitable fabrics: Quilted Nylon or cotton; upholstery fabric.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE PATTERN:
http://www.angelfire.com/indie/cedu/diy/diy_boot_001.jpg

Making and altering the pattern:
The pattern here is for shoe size 7 1/2 .  Rule one sheet of paper into a grid of 1 inche squares.  Copy the pattern from the graph (figure 1) onto your grid, one square on the graph being equal to one square on the grid.  Cut out the pattern.  Measure carefully the length of your foot by drawing carefully around it on the second sheet of brown paper.  The length from the tip of the big toe to the heel corresponds to the straight line from A to B on the pattern.

To make the pattern larger.
Cut the pattern along line E to F.  Lay the pattern onto the clean side of the brown paper and spread the two sections until Line A to B is the correct length.  Redraw the curves as shown in figure 2 and cut out the new pattern.
To make the pattern smaller.
Cut the Pattern Along line E to F.  Overlap the two pattern sections until line A to B is the correct length. Lay the pattern onto the brown paper (clean side), redraw the curves as shown in figure 3 and cut out the new pattern.

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/cedu/diy/diy_boot_002.jpg This is figure 2 & 3.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MAKING THE BOOTS

Cutting the fabric. Fold the yard in half right sides together.  Pin the pattern to the top of the folded fabric and cut around the shape leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Unpin the pattern, and cut the other boot in the same way from the remaining fabric.

Joining the fabric. Place the fabric peices together in pairs, right sides facing, and machine stitch from B to C and from D to A with 1/4 inch seam.

Machine stitch these seams again over the previous stitching to strengthen them.  Press the seams open and snip the seam allowances on the curves.  Cover each seam with tape and slipstich the edges of the tape to the fabric, hiding the raw edges of the seams with the tape (FIGURE 4 aka below)

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/cedu/diy/diy_boot_003.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Joining the fabric to the soles.


Pin and baste the fabric to the soles matching the toes and heels and edges.  Using a fairly long stitch, carefully machine stitch the soles into place with 1/4 inch seams.  Machine stitch the seams twice as before.  Open out the seam allowances, cover with tape, and slip stitch the edges to the fabric and soles. (FIGure 5 aka above picture).

Finishing the boots.

Make the top edges of the boots neat by turning 1/2 inch hems covering the raw edges of the fabric with seam tape and slip stitch into position.  Turn the boots right side out.

Wow, I really like this idea. UGG boots are ugly anyways... you might as well make boots that don't look like everyone else's.

Now you can make your own "Fashion Flair Boudoir Boots.

If only I had a boudoir...preferably draped all in red velvet, with vases of peacock feathers everywhere...  Cheesy

Seriously, that is the best name ever for an item of clothing.  I will have to make a pair, solely to be able to tell people that I'm wearing Fashion Flair Boudoir Boots.

I agree I have never used bias binding before!
with the sizing, how much do you add/take away for each size is it it an inch per size for example? also does anyone know the american to british size conversions?

one last question, can these be worn out side? i guess it depends on the material right?
