First you'll need to take a few simple measurements, depending on which boot topper you plan to make. I will provide you with the measurements I personally used for my boot toppers - the long one and the short ones.
First, I took the faux fur material and draped it over my leg and pinned it in together in three places - the top, middle and lower part of my leg. I left about an inch extra to allow for seam allowances. Once I was happy with how it looked, felt and where the pins were, I then took more pins and put them in only one layer of the material. I tried to place them in the same spots as the first pins, so I could remove the pins that were in both layers and remove the fabric from my leg.Important:
Even though you pinned at the top of where you want the boot topper to start, and also in the middle area near your calf, do not cut the material any smaller than where the middle pin is placed for your calf area. If you do cut smaller towards the top where your top pin was, you will not be able to pull the boot topper up over your calf! So, follow the path of the bottom pin to the middle pin and then up from there, without making it any smaller than the middle measurement.
Then, place the fabric on a cutting mat or use your scissors to lay it out and follow the path of your pins to cut the excess material or faux fur off.
Place the two cut pieces on one another and smooth them out - cut off any excess material to be sure the sizes of both cut out pieces are the same.My Long Boot Topper Measurements:
Short Boot Topper Measurements:
14 1/2 inches across the top (top pin measurement)
16 1/2 inches long (from top pin to bottom - or just below my knee to my ankle)
16 1/2 inches across the bottom (bottom pin - this area is wider so it tapers out)
14 1/2 inches across the top
7 1/2 inches long
17 inches across
Elastic - 9 1/2 inches (this varies for everyone so you need to take your own measurement)
