Was anyone else amused by that Beatles reference in the title? John Lennon, A Day In The Life? No? Just me? Ok, understandable.
Well these are the shoes I made yesterday! Here is how they started:
I got the idea from these boots, from Luxury Jones.
I saw my favorite youtube vlogger grav3yardgirl had them, and I wanted them too! Now, I don't know if anyone has random, never worn boots lying around like me... but I'll show you how I made them anyway,
The boots were hand-me-downs that I never wore even though I've had them for years. I got the fabric from a tie dye tapestry I had two of the same of. So i cut the tapestry into strips about two inches thick and wrapped it around the boot. I cut them wide and sloppily to give it a rough look. It looks cooler if the straps overlap and fold over. Then I did a rough stitch along the edges of the strips of fabric. The boot was too thick to sew through, but the fabric will hold itself there if sewn together. I am less then mediocre at sewing, but it really doesnt matter with this!
Once that was done, I just took two similar old belts and wrapped them around the shoe a few times.
Yeah they are a little out there... but I think they turned out cool!
I had a very successful thrift shopping trip today, I'll try to have a post on that up tomorrow!
