I got a pair of faux Uggs for Christmas and never liked the way they fit or looked. I decided to hack them up and make a cozy pair of moccasin slippers. They are comfy and cozy and great for wearing around the house.
Cheap faux Ugg boots
needle and thread
This should take about an hour give or take
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cut
Cut down the middle of boot. I used a pinking shear to do this with.
Step 2: More Cutting
Cut all the way around the ankle area. You should have something that now resembles a slipper
Step 3: Stich
Take your needle and thread and do a basic stich around the slipper. This doesn't need to be anything pretty. It is just to hold the leather to the liner.
Step 4: More Cutting
Use the remainder of the faux leather to make your fringe. This will not only add a cool look but it will cover up that raw edge on the slipper.
1-Lay the opening of slipper on leather
2-trace around opening
3- trace another circle about 1 1/2 inches larger around the first cirlce
4-Cut a small X in the middle of the small circle
Step 5: Cut Out
Cut out around large Circle
take sissors and make small cuts from edge of large circle to the small cirlce.. This creats the fringe. Do this all the way around
extend (snip) the X in the smaller circle accoding to the slipper. Then fold over and begin to sew the fringe to the slipper. Do this all the way around the opening
Step 8: Enjoy
Now enjoy your new slippers.
