1. Old leather shoes
2. Simple tank or t-shirt (mine is American Apparel)
3. Krazy Glue or Hot Glue Gun
4. Scissors
5. A ruler
6. A pen

Step 1: Step 1: Cut the Boots

Cut along the seams so you have a clean piece to work with.

Step 2: Step 2: Draw, Trace, and Cut

You're going to have to draw 4 different size triangles.
7 Large
12 Medium
5 Small
3 Extra Small

Use the first triangle you cut out for each size to trace the rest. Make sure you draw them on the underside of the leather in case you mess up!

Step 3: Step 3: Measure

Lay the shirt as flat as possible and measure it from armpit to armpit. Find the center and use your pen to put a little dot right in the middle, where the first triangle will go.

Step 4: Step 4: Glue!

First put something in between the shirt like newspaper so you don't glue the shirt together. Then, lay all the triangles out before you glue them. Glue them in the order shown below. Make sure the first triangle (the pink #1) goes right in the middle where you drew the dot. (I swear it's not as confusing as it looks!)
1. First glue the large triangles in pink.
2. Then the medium triangles in blue.
3. Then the small triangles in green.
4. And finally the extra small triangles in yellow.
