Picture of DIY Boot Toppers - Faux Fur Leg Warmers
If you're sick of wearing the same old boots and want to change things up - so it will look and feel like you're wearing new ones - this is a great project for you! You can also make them as a gift for someone - they don't take long to make and are very simple!
It gets extremely cold where I live in Wisconsin - so I am preparing for it now! ;) These will be worn a lot during Winter.

*The boot toppers in the images were all made by me tonight - all of them were made within a few hours time. The longest one in the images took the most time because I made them reversible, with a stretchy soft snowflake fabric on the opposite side. I explain how to do this in the instructable. If you don't make yours reversible and don't have any type of lining, which is fine, you can a long pair of  these in a matter of 30 minutes to an hour! If you are just making a short boot topper, it shouldn't take more than a half an hour or less. *

Wearing them: You can wear these over almost any pair of boots, slippers or shoes that you like. Much of the shoe is covered, so it's really up to you. It creates an illusion that you have a new pair of boots on! The boot toppers have an elastic band on the top so you can just pull them on and off.

If you're ready, let's get started!

Materials Needed:
  • Faux Fur (I bought mine at JoAnn Fabric on sale)
  • Elastic
  • Measuring Tape & Sewing Machine
