Make a pair of cowboy boots for a little one in a few easy steps. Get the pattern here. Scroll to bottom of the page for a video tutorial.
YeeHaw! These fun boots would make a great gift, or a prop for infant photography. They are simple to make from felt squares, and this pattern includes four sizes!
What you will need:
Download and print the pattern. No special programs or directions are required for printing. Once printed, cut out the pieces.
2 squares of felt for each pair you decide to make, unless you decide to mix up the colors, then get more.
Pin the pattern pieces to the felt (or other fabric choice) and cut out.
Sew the contrast piece:
Place the contrast piece to the boot side and pin well. Using a zipper foot for visibility, top sew the contrast piece to the boot side. When sewn, trim where necessary front and back. Set Aside.
If you would like to add any extra designs or trims, now is the time to do so. Here are some ideas:
Sew the Toe Dart:
Match the sides of the “V” in the toe and sew them using a narrow seam allowance. I like to use 1/4″ for the toe dart.
Attach the Foot and Side:
Sew the foot top to the boot side with right sides facing. Sew the non-dart side of the foot to the curved middle of the boot side.
Please be advised: the fabric used, and the angle of the cut, will determine how well these pieces fit together when sewn. Trim any non-matching seams before continuing with the next step.
Sew the Boot Back:
Fold the boot in half and sew the back seam 5/8″
Sew on the Soles:
Set out the cut soles and place them left to right. Pin the heel seam of each boot to the center of the heel on the sole. Sew the sole to the boot side.
Turn right side out. Enjoy!
