Shearling Boots DIY
Are you interested in a pair of Shearling boots, but gasp at the cost of certain brands? Fear no more, as you can easily make a custom pair of boots as a DIY project. This is a perfect way to save some money and to make something as a homemade gift.
Making a pair of Shearling boots at home will require getting the proper materials and supplies. A pair of scissors will be crucial as will a Sharpie and an X-acto knife. You will also need to have a five sq inch piece of Shearing hide, some waxed thread, and rubber boot or shoe soles. A pattern is also necessary.
The most important item you need to have for this project is a sewing or stitching awl. This is used for sewing the Shearing hide together to form the boots. You should be able to find one for under $10 at a local hardware store or online.
