Make Your Boots Happy With Some DIY Boot Sweaters (Plus a Winner and Another Giveaway)


Some people make sweaters for their husbands. Some people make sweaters for their dogs. Some people even make sweaters for their cats.


I like to make sweaters for my boots.

I mean really! If it makes them happy, WHY NOT!!!??


You can use any old sweater and a little faux fur to give your old boots a whole new look this winter.

    This is such a cute idea, Beth. You’ve outdone yourself again 🙂 The picture of you modeling your creation is adorable.

    Please enter me in the drawing.

  3. Darlene says:

    How cozy these boot sweaters look! So many times a favorite sweater can no longer be worn and what a wonderful way of giving it a new life instead of having to say”goodbye”!

  4. Nikitaland says:

    I never met a boot that did not like a new sweater! Love your new idea!

  5. dragonflyzia says:

    These are adorable! I think that I might have to give you your own board instead of just adding you to I Love Fabric….you are so clever. 🙂

  6. *Gasp* Oh, I love these!!

  7. Jo H. says:

    Aw, they are so cute – I just want to pat them! Seriously, though, I can see this definitely keeping the legs warmer in this cold weather we’ve been having.

  8. Vicky says:

    I have seen some cute ideas lately on Pinterest, under Bohemian things, for dressing up
    boots too, very tempting and interesting. Beth, I found a new goodwill, that is the nicest store I was ever in, and was so happy to discover a beautiful wool throw, in plaids, I was looking for a leather vest, or jacket to repurpose with sweater sleeves too, I found a denium vest, and a
    velour vest, that I brought home, now to find a couple sweaters in blues, to see if they would
    pair up? Your ideas are really inspiring me!!!!

  9. Ruth Lutz says:

    Dear Beth,
    Such a delightful idea! I have immediate plans to check the thrift stores for a cute Nordic-style sweater to make a pair for my boots! My feet are always cold, so I’m hoping this could help. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of your book and for sharing your wonderfully creative ideas with us!
    Warm regards,
    Ruth Lutz
