Step 1: Remove hardware
The first thing I did was remove the ‘hardware’ – the strap and stud area around the ankle of each of my boots.
Step 2: Cut your Boots
To prepare the body of your purse you need to cut the bottom part of the boot where the ‘shoe’ section ends and the calf begins.
Step 3: Turn inside out & remove lining
The first thing to do, after you’ve cut the calf off your boot, is to turn it inside out to see what you have on the inside.
Step 4: Even out edges
Unless you were super precise when you cut your boot the first time there might be a bit of an uneven line where the top of the heel met the calf.
Step 5: Sew the bottom
With the leather turned inside out, use a running stitch to sew the lower portion of the boot until you have closed up the bottom of your bag.
