DIY Project: Making Rain Boot Cuff Inserts

I bought this jacket at the thrift store for $5.99 for another project I have in the works.  I just love this plaid print and thought I could use the jacket sleeves  for cute sock inserts for  my rain boots. You could make these inserts with any heavy fabric material, so happy hunting at the thrift store or you own closet.

For this project, you will need scissors, iron-on tape, and an iron. When cutting the sleeves, take into account the width  and length of your leg that you want to go down into your boot.  

Lay the iron on the tape at the top of the sleeve inside out.

Iron and pull the tape off. Then fold the top over about an 1/2  inch and iron.

Then put the insert into your rain boot inside out. Leave 4 to 5 inches at the top, so you can fold over the rain boot.

Final outcome- Rain boots with  a fabulous plaid cuff insert. I love to hear what you think!!
