Boot season is officially here! Add a little edge to your pair of Back Zipper Boots with these simple (and cute!) leather attachments created by Liz from Cotton & Curls, studs optional!
Supplies: Minnetonka Back Zipper Boots
Leather or faux leather (mine is faux from the upholstery section)
Needle and thread
Glue (I used fabric mod podge)
Scissors and (optional) exacto knife
Instructions: Step 1. Cut around 3.5 to 5 feet of leather material per shoe about 1/3″ to 3/4″ apart.
Step 2. I had to cut shorter pieces that were about 2 feet long, so I needed to glue (or you can sew) together strips to make 3.5 to 5 feet long. Make 2 strips of 3.5 to 5 foot long piece, one for each shoe.
Step 3. Wrap the strips around your shoes and make it the length you want, leaving enough overlap for the button and the button hole. Sew on a button to one end, and slice a few button holes with scissors or an exacto knife on the other end. Done!
Step 4.Optional: You can add studs to the straps to add a little more edge or character! Do this by puncturing little holes into the strips where the prongs of the studs will go, then push them down on the other side.

What’s your favorite city and why?
New York City. I don’t think this really needs TOO much explanation. It’s only THE MOST AMAZING CITY IN THE WORLD. Besides that, my hometown of Austin, TX isn’t half bad either. Why? So many fun activities here, an active lifestyle, great food, nice people… and just enough quirk to keep it interesting.
