Store bought Christmas stockings have always seemed lame. After a few high heel versions I saw on Woot I decided to do what fellow instructalbes members do...MAKE ONE. One that  would match my wife's personality a bit better.

So here is my wife's new high heel stocking. She was just given it today as a Christmas gift so Santa could fill it on Christmas eve. (of course I believe in Santa he is the original maker....) Its both a gift and a gift magnet.

So lets get started..

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

2/3 ish yards fabric for the boot upper. (red velvet from Joanns)
1/3 yard boot trim. (white fur stuff from Joanns)
One pair heels (goodwill, if you have issues with old shoes buy new. all parts were either painted or covered)
1 tube shoe goo (home depot)
Spray adhesive
a sewing machine
thread to match the upper color and trim color
a paper bag for a pattern
a pencil
a pair of scissors
a kinfe with a rounded thick blade
a screw driver (flat) or a trim stick
clamps
spray paint for the heel (what ever color you like i used black)
lots of sneaky....so your wife doesn't catch you
cash money (to bribe the kids, see above)

Step 2: Get Cuttin..

Separate the upper from the sole of the shoe. Insert the knife blade between the sole, and rock it back and fourth. The toe is a good point to start. I found this out after taking the picture and struggling. You will need to open the heel up also use the knife to open it and pull the upper material out. Use a straight screw driver to pry up the edges of the sole from the plastic heel. When you are done the shoe should look like the second picture.
