A couple of years ago I did a boot customisation. I took some gigantic boots and cut them down to be nice and fitted. You can see the original boots customisation tutorial over here.
It’s time for the sequel 😀 😀 😀
This time I took some poorly fitted weird boots my Mum was getting rid of and turned them into cute ankle boots!
I made these…
Out of these…
Things I used:
So let’s get into it!
First I pulled up the cover part so I could see what I was dealing with. Easy enough, it was all fabric except for the bottom part which was faux leather.
So I cut off the top.
This was quite a cute shape but I had the idea in my head to make the front more the shape of a court shoe.
So I snipped it down into a “V” shape.
To finish off the raw edges I cut strips of black felt and stitched the around the edges.
They folded over to hide the edges.
Next I removed the faux fur trim around the old hood.
Then I stitched it around the edge of the shoe tops.
Then it was just about accessories!
I stitched two rows of chain coming from the fur.
Then added the crosses in. This is is much darker than my usual style but I really like it at the moment!
The charms are easily removable too so I could switch them out with something pinker later when the mood strikes me ^_^
DONE! It really didn’t take very long and it was quite fun to do.
Different from my usual style but very fun!
Now time to wear them!
What do you guys think?
Boot modification version 2 success!
