Add some “wow” to your outfit or costume with this clever add-on accessory.
Can we just say, “yes, please!” These DIY boot covers are pretty amazing! Make them using Dritz® eyelets and wear them with your everyday black booties for a total transformation! It’s a unique and easy way to give your basic booties new life as a racy cosplay or Halloween accessory. Don’t miss the no-sew cloak that you can make and pair with these “boots.”
|Are you starting to get the picture? The cloak/gown and boot cover combo is really quite stunning. Full credit goes to Laura, over at Trash To Couture! She really is a marvel at creating easy pieces that are super versatile, and that work with so many different outfits and costumes.|
|Here’s a closer look at the Dritz® eyelets and elastic that are used to make the boot covers.
Tip: notice the Dritz® eyelet pliers? If you’ve got a pair in your stash, they come in handy for making the eyelet holes in the fabric (and if not, scissors work great, too). You’ll apply these particular eyelets with a hand tool.
|And that cloak. This no-sew piece comes together quickly and is fastened in the front with a Dritz® tab closure. The skeleton hands were a spooky embellishment pulled from the stash for fun on Halloween night.|
|Here’s the whole look. Pretty dramatic, huh? Jump on over to Trash To Couture and see how easy it is to make both the boot covers and the cloak/gown.
We hope you find these pieces as inspiring as we do, and that you enjoy using Dritz® products to make one-of-a-kind accessories and clothing that truly allow you to be YOU.
