Boot snuggies (i don’t know if they are called that, but that’s the name that comes to mind, so lets go with it) are a great way to dress up your boots, and add warmth without extra bulk, like leg warmers and long socks can sometimes do. I have seen them for as much as 36 bucks (yeah right!) so I thought to myself:
“hey self, you can probably just make those and they would be just as snazzy as those Steve Madden ones”
So I did.
If you have an old sweater with holes ready for tossing, why not re-purpose it into a few fall/winter accessories for practically free?!
This no sew DIY involves simply cutting your sweater and adding some pretty detail to create a snuggleicious (occasionally I make up words) cowl and cute boot-toppers in under a half-hour!
First, cut off the sleeves of your sweater just before the armpit. Then trim the bottom off at a place that seems good to you. For mine, I cut just above the ribbing. Try and do a nice clean, straight cut.
the bottoms of these don’t matter much, because they are just getting hidden by your boot. You can trim them to any length you like and create a custom fit. The ribbon is nice, because you can tie it as tight as you like, keeping the look you want without it sliding down your leg into the boot!
So simple <3
