Upcycle Challenge: Halloween Witch Boots

It's time for another Upcycle Challenge! For the October Upcycle Challenge, my blog group and I are creating upcycle projects using old clothes, cloth, or material. So I thought it would be perfect to share the upcycled Halloween Witch Boots that I made using an old pair of maternity shorts. To create the boots, I searched around the World Wide Web for a sewing pattern, and I found an awesome pattern and tutorial for Witch Shoe Treat Bags or Silverware Holders.  So here are some pics from my sewing adventure:

I didn't have any plain black fabric, so I dug out an old faded pair of maternity shorts...

I traced the pattern onto the shorts and pinned since I wanted to cut through both layers.

Next I cut out a witch shoe in Halloween fabric from my fabric stash. I pinned the shoe onto the black fabric and zigzag stitched the top of the shoe in place.

I pinned the fabric with right sides facing each other, and then I sewed around the edges.

I top stitched around the bottom of the shoes. Then, I hand sewed the orange ribbon and purple and yellow star buttons onto the "stockings."  Then I added black pom poms around the top of the boots.


I decided to add these witchy boots to my Witchy Halloween Wreath

My Witchy Halloween Wreath is now complete!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Halloween Witch Boots. I hope you'll also visit my friends' awesome upcycle projects below!
