So, I took some of my mom's old brown boots that she never wears, and covered them with cheetah fabric! They're are modeled after Mimi's cheetah boots from Rent, with the brown zipper on the side and everything!

The final product:





And here's a 'before' picture:



I've never done any work with shoes before, so I'm really happy with how they turned out! They're pretty flimsy, so they look a little warped at spots in the pictures, but you get the point! They are sewed directly onto the original boot for the leg part, and then hot glued down near the sole.

If anyone has any tips to give me for revamping boots in the future, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for looking! Comments, critiques, and advice welcome as always!

Much better than the before. I think they look great, and I can't believe you sewed the fabric on.

How fun are these!!  If your hot glue starts to peel off (it might), you could maybe try shoe goo or E6000.

Yeah, I've been kind of worried it might, so thanks for the advice! Could I get that at a craft store like Joanne's, or would I have to go somewhere else?
