These Boots Weren't Made For Walking.....

Baby girl needed something to keep her feet warm. 
Jess and I found some lovely wool fabric at the Jacksonville Quilt Fest. Then she found a shoe pattern she liked here. 

We had to make some modifications to the pattern. The calf was not quite wide enough and Jess asked me to leave the lining out of the foot area and attach it in the shaft area. It made a huge difference on how they fit on Bella Boo.
That black leather tab is hiding the elastic I added at the top.
Matt even got in on the design by requesting leather soles for this pair. This is recycled leather from an old jacket of his. I love recycling!
The pair below was the first set we made and we were working out the kinks.

They are usable but a bit more clunky.
I almost wore the wool out trying to get them right....
This girl seems to be growing so quickly. Before I know it, she will need boots for walking!
My girls, I love them so.
Yes, I got this girl some jeggings. It just seemed right with the boots. 
Now I need to get a couple more light-weight boots done and an all leather pair done, and a fur lined pair, oh and a fur on the outside pair and......


  1. They are so cute! Perfect for recycling old coats!
