Thrifted "Ugg" type boots get a lift with faux fur from used coats and collars and faux leather ("pleather") from old purses. The boots were originally in fairly good shape, but were only ankle high. I hand sewed faux fur cuffs to make the boots calf high, but also give them the option to be folded down to ankle height. I also glued on stylized leaves cut from pleather and hot stamped. Buttons on the backs of the cuffs, with an invisible elastic band helps keep pants tucked in. Fun, trashion-fashionable and so warm!
