DIY easy kid pirate boot covers
Let’s Batten Down The Hatches:
– Standard sheets of felt (I used two 8.5×11″ pieces)
– Sewing machine (here’s a basic sewing machine should you not have one)
– Black thread + sewing straight pins
– 4 x Gold Coins
– Fabric glue (this is some of my favorite glue)
Avast! Step #1: Wrap a piece of felt around the boot with the ends meeting at the back of the boot. Wrap tightly and hold in place with some sewing pins.
Aye-Aye! Step #2: Slip the pinned cover up and over the boot. Blimey! You have lots of choices at this point…
You can sew the felt together (as I did) or use my all-time fave, fabric glue. Once secured, slip the felt cover back over the boot and fold down the excess felt to resemble a cuff.
Arr! Step #3: Lots of options here, me landlubbers, to dress-up the pirate boots. I chose to use fabric glue to add gold doubloons to the outsides of the boots. Other ideas include adding ribbon and a buckle, or adhering iron-on pirate patches available at any craft store.
