How to Make Slipper Boots

Sweater boots are popular for their comfort and chic style. They can be worn with jeans for a casual look or paired with leggings and a skirt for a more dressed-up feel. These boots can retail between £13 and £65, but it is possible to cut down on costs by making them yourself at home. With some creativity and a sweater you are willing to recycle, you can construct your very own sweater boots.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Using the scissors, cut both sleeves off of the sweater, cutting along the shoulder seam.

  2. 2

    Place the detached sweater arms over the pair of flats, matching the fabric up with the outline of the sole of the shoe.

  3. 3

    Using the hot glue gun, glue the seam of the sweater securely to the edge of the sole. Repeat if necessary.

  4. 4

    Using the scissors, trim the top of your boot to your desired length.

  5. 5

    Using the needle and thread, finish the top of the boot by hemming it to prevent any unravelling.

Tips and warnings

  • Buttons, embroidery or ribbons can be added to enhance and personalise your sweater boots.
  • Choosing a tighter-woven sweater will significantly decrease the probability of your sweater material unravelling while you are working on your boots.
