Finishing

It’s convertible! Fold down your boots or leave it up for ultimate warmth 🙂

Decorate your boots with ribbons, buttons, etc. or leave as is! In my sample, I simply left a longer yarn tail and used that to tie a ribbon on each side.

Tip!

I added a non-skid sole to my boots (that’s the white part on the sole, if you happen to notice it on my photos). I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial, but this is what I did…I simply used the non-slip mats sold at the rug section, trace the sole and cut out 2 pieces. Then carefully glue on to the slipper boots using a hot glue gun. You may also use Plasti-Dip to spray the sole, which I believe will give you a nicer finish, but I find this takes a long time and gets messy, so for now, I’ll stick with this simpler (and rather lazy) method 🙂

Enjoy! ♥
