Stashbusting September Project #6: These Boots Are Made For Witchin'

So my husband had these pants. Got your attention? It is about a pair of my husband's old pants that a couple of months ago, he put by the door to go to Goodwill. I thought they were too far gone for GW because the hems were all frayed but rather than toss them, of course I saw them as fabric. For what I didn't know...yet.

Since I've been doing some Halloween prep, I decided I wanted a pair of witch boots. Just seemed like a fun idea. I figured I bust some of my felt stash and then I saw the pants! They're nice cotton twill..perfect for witch boot stockings right? Out came the scissors and off came the legs. I now have a pair of shorts left. Any hoo... I downloaded a pattern from the internet and lengthened it a bit because while I'm short, my imaginary witch is tall!

Sewed the basic boot together :
Kicking Up My Heels!
Got busy with some embellishments, including a pair of earrings that for reasons I will never know were included in a jar of old chandelier crystals I bought at an antique store. I had some fabric flowers left over from another project so on those went. I had some fabric scaps sitting around so those became some more flowers. I figured I was on a flower theme here so out came some paper flowers from my embellishment bin and on those went. Of course what's a witch without some bling, so in the middle of the flowers went buttons and in the middle of the buttons went rhinestones.

Ripped some strips of scrap fabric to make "belts" for my boots and here's where the earrings came in to dress up the "belts".

Finished them off with some raffia handles so I can hang them up. I may leave them here on my end caps:

Or I may add them to a garland I've yet to make for my mantle.
