Easy enough for the kids to do.
Approx. finished size 7cm x 7cm (2 3/4" x 2 3/4")

- White pom pom trim
- Thread or ribbon for a hanging loop

This one is 8cm from heel to toe, 8cm from top to bottom and 5cm across the top (3" x 3" x 2"), and we got four complete boots out of one standard felt square.
But you can do them any size.

- Cut two small hearts out of the white felt
- Stitch one onto each boot about 3cm (1 1/4") from the top (remember to stitch them onto opposite sides)
- Add a tiny red button onto each heart
- Put the two boots together and stitch round the edge using a blanket stitch or running stitch
- Leave a gap before you finish stitching and stuff it with toy filling, then finish stitching
- Take a piece of white pom pom trim and stich it around the top of the boot
- Add a thread hanger to the top corner and you're finished
There a lots of different colour combinations to try.
They also look great strung in a row like bunting.
