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.

Clever and Adorable!!
Thanks, Sarah!!! Happy New Year. Looks like you’ve got lots of people inspired to to a RTW fast again this year.
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.
Thanks so much for, once again, brightening my day, Mother Deer!
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”!
Thanks, Darlene! So many sweaters….so little time 🙂
I never met a boot that did not like a new sweater! Love your new idea!
Boots are funny that way……. 🙂
I know! Wait til you meet my flip flops! 🙂
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. 🙂
Thanks!!!! You made my day!
*Gasp* Oh, I love these!!
Oh, you are so sweet Tondra Denise!!! Thank you!
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.
Feel free to pat my boot sweaters anytime, Jo H. 🙂
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!!!!
I’m so gad you found a good thrift store with lots of treasures, Vicky! You never know what might be waiting for you there. 🙂 Have fun!
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!
You are so very welcome, Ruth!!! I hope you find the perfect sweater to use for your boot sweaters!
So cute! And they look warm, too! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for this afternoon that links to your tutorial:
Thanks for sharing this, Anne!
Love the boot sweaters!
Thank you, Cathy!!!
