These boots turned out really cute! I made them in red with turquoise trim. I used thin Velcro in place of zippers. Worked well! I have plans to make more!
They turned out very nice. I hand basted the pieces and zipper before sewing them on the machine, pinning never works very well for me. I used a very contrasting color thread so it would be easier to pick it out after sewing them with the machine. I also machine basted a 1/4 inch guide line at the base of the boot. Then I made V shape notches at the toe and heal, being careful not to cut past the stitched guide line. I found this helped with the leather/vinyl to lay flatter and not get bunched up and bulky. I tried using the hot glue gun on the first boot I made and it was one big a gloppy glue-y mess for me. I burnt my fingers too! So, I switched and used a fast grab tacky glue. It takes a little longer with this glue, you have to hold it in place until it sets up, but the finished project turned out better.
Dificil de hacer, pero preciosas. Gracias
