Thank you for sharing with us! Maybe I'll take a crack at this when my flats start to wear out ^^;

Hi, all Smiley I'm new to posting, but I have lurked for some time. It really helps my creativity to see some of the things other people have made.

That being said, I still think I'm missing something on this tutorial in regards to the bottom of the boot.

I realize that the bottom of the boot is the bottom of the original shoe. However, in the pictures, we see the sweater sleeve getting glued to *and covering* the bottom of the show. How do I get back to the original shoe bottom? Do I cut off the sweater around the sole of the original shoe once the glue has dried? Am I mistaking what the photo shows and I should really just be gluing the sleeve to the tops of the shoes?

Sorry to be all confused!!

From what I can tell, it is inside out when you glue it, then you turn it right side out afterward.

Hey

I just wanted to post something to make something clear. I am totally fine with people using this tutorial to make their own boots. You guys can even sell your swank boots on Etsy or wherever. I'm very cool with that, I even encourage it! (it would be really nice if you could say where you got the tute) The point of me posting it with a tutorial was to share it with people so they can make their own and have fun with it. That's what this place is for!

However... please do not sell a "pattern" for these boots, using the free tutorial posted. That's really not fair and in the spirit of sharing ideas. You can use this template to make your own tutorial if you like, but use your own boots and your own images. Don't use images of my boots to sell your stuff. I dont like to be mean and all yell-y. Please just make your own stuff!
