Rock Your Ugg Boots


It's that time of year around here in the Midwest-time to get out your warm boots and prepare for the cold. Ugg boots are a warm, comfortable fashion staple for many of us this around here this time of year. (Of course, being a thrifty momma I got my knock-off's from Costco.) 

Ever since discovering cloth rosettes, I have been pretty much addicted to making them--and now that I know how to make the felt ones, I love these even more. Thanks to Stelabird for the tutorial!  Well, I thought it would be fun to make my knock-off Uggs stand out a little and add some pretty felt rosettes to them. 
Here's what you'll need: 
  1. felt-I like using Eco-Fi made from 100% recycled plastic bottles
  2. fabric scissors
  3. pin back
  4. glue gun
  5. marker or pen
  6. round traceable object-like a jar lid



Here's how I did it:

Trace a few circles onto felt

Cut them from the outside in into a circular swirl (see pic below)


This is what the swirl should look like

Roll the felt circle into a rosette shape, adding a dot of glue along the way


Glue gun a pin back to make it removable 

Here's how they should look! Don't worry if they don't-it took me a few tries .


I pinned them to the seam so it wouldn't damage the suede

Ta da!  I'm rockin my Uggs
