A few months ago, I saw these super cute fleece boot liners at Target. I do have "lovely" black rubber boots and I was sure that fleece liners would be just the ticket. At $9.99 plus tax a pair, however, I was disinclined to buy them. I knew I could make some for far less. I bought some adorable fleece on sale for roughly $5/yard. Then life interfered and my adorable fleece got put on a shelf.
Fast forward to tonight. The house is relatively clean, dinner dishes were non-existent because we went to a church Christmas dinner, and the kids and I are tucked cozily into our home for the evening. Half an hour later and I have a pair of fleece boot liners.
1) Measure the distance from your big toe to your calf at the point your boots end...then end three inches to that number. My number was 25 inches. Cut four pieces that look like this:
3) Sew one flat piece to one heeled piece. Repeat.
4) Trim the top of each liner to make front and back the same length.
5) Fold over to create a cuff. (Since I was using fleece, I didn't hem my liners.)
6) Oh, and don't forget that you want to put them on "inside out" so that the seams are against the inside of the boot.
(Oh, and if you're extra lucky, you'll have some feline help to keep you motivated. Ninja is oh-so-encouraging, don't you think?)
