or…if you’re ok with mediocre read on:)

Materials:
  • 1/4 yard felt-backed vinyl (you can find this in the home decor fabric area. It’s for making tablecloths)
  • 4 brass jump rings (found mine in the jewelry section- they bend open and shut)
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pattern
  • Velcro
  • Embroidery thread and embellishments (optional)
*Since I made these for Crafting with the Stars in the all excitement I didn’t take quite as many pictures as I should have. It think it’s all still pretty clear, but please feel free to email me with the questions. I’m happy to help:)

1. Get your pattern here. This pattern fits approx. size 3-4. Enlarge or shrink before printing to fit your baby. (*I’ve made a few improvements so don’t panic if you’re pieces looks slightly different than mine) Cut out your pieces

2. With right sides together sew your upper boot pieces together

3. Make sure your seams are lying flat and then topstitch down with brown thread using a basting stitch. Next, pin on your toe piece (it’s a bit tricky!)
4. Topstitch the toe piece down using brown thread (not a basting stitch this time or it won’t hold). *The pieces in the toe area have a bit of wiggle room- you don’t need to get everything perfectly lined up. I added in a little extra fabric to make it easier to sew on. 

5. Make your harness straps. For each boot you need 2 short pieces for the sides and 2 long to go around the front and back. I just eyeballed the length and trimmed as needed. Since vinyl doesn’t fray I just used a single layer and then top stitched in brown with a basting stitch for decoration. (I folded my edges under on the side pieces, but that isn’t really necessary) Then tuck the end under and stitch down, so you have a loop to put the ring through. Do that to both ends on the long pieces and 1 end on the short pieces. *If you’re using a ring that doesn’t open and shut you will need to stitch the ends down after the ring is in place

6. With right sides together stitch up your back. If you want to make them easy to get on and off only stitch part way up. Then fold over the edges on the top half and stitch into place one side at a time. Then I just added some velcro with a hot glue gun.

7. Turn your boot inside out and pin to the sole, so right sides are together. Tuck your short harness pieces in on each side below your side seams- the right side should be facing the sole. Stitch down and turn right side out.

8. To add your pull tabs cut a small strip of vinyl and stitch both ends down at the same time. (see pic. for step 9)

9. Now you can embellish them however you want. I did a little detail on the toe with embroidery thread and then added a sweet little flower from a piece of brown vinyl. The center is a scrapbooking eyelet. I made the stem and leaves from green embroidery thread. Have fun!
Your lil’ pardner will love them!
