is there a way to make boot covers but still have the heel, sole/base of the shoe to show?

Do you think if I change the shape a bit that this method could work making fleece Nepeta paw slippers? All the other methods require ruining a shoe and I really can't do that right now.

When you hem the top, is that folding it over as one usually does with a hem, or just finishing the edge with a zigzag stitch?

it's folding it over as a rolled hem, but then using the zig zag stitch instead of the straight stitch

So you might not even see this, but I'm curious--do you have any tricks for the bottoms of the covers when you're not using vinyl? I'm worried that if I used spandex or something else like that, I'd end up slipping and falling on my face because that sort of fabric has no traction. Would it make sense to just take some other fabric (like vinyl, lol) and glue or sew it to the bottoms of the spandex covers?

if you're not using vinyl it can get a bit slippery, so what I'll usually do it cut out a piece of vinyl/pleather in the shape of the bottom of the shoe and glue it to the bottom of the shoe for traction! it also look nicer :3 so yeah exactly what you said!!

Excellent tutorial! I can't wait to give it a try! (Although do you have any advice for those of us who are terrible at eyeballing the width when sketching out the base leg? Any measurements we should take?)

:iconmostflogged:
Mostflogged Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
try taking a measuring tape and measuring your ankle and biggest part of your calf and thigh, then measuring the distance between each point. Cut the number for the circumference of your ankle/thigh/calf in half but keep the distance between them the same and use them as reference points when you're sketching!!

Wow, those turned out wonderful! Making boot/shoe covers is a lot cheaper, but I almost died making one for my Sailor Moon cosplay D: It was my first time making them and I had difficulty trying to make it have that inverted V shape (i used socks), and I had no idea how to attach the non-stretch white trim so I did it with velcro, press studs and hot glue...it worked so there~ =P I might have to invest in proper boots sometime though, haha~

PS: It's so sweet of you to always take time and make tutorials for other cosplayers :heart:

I have never made a cosplay in my life, but this is quite fascinating stuff to me. I always wondered how cosplayers make such high quality and accurate designs.
