I started my Pinterest Challenge to myself today, which is basically to actually do some of the stuff I’ve pinned!
My first task was Home Made Dog Booties. I followed these steps: INSTRUCTIONS.
They were so simple! Best of all, I used items I had around the house. An old denim placemat, some elastic I saved from thrown away fitted sheets, a pair of leather boots bound for Goodwill, and some velcro off of a costume I was going to toss.
It took a couple of hours due to sewing machine fun, but all in all, they work!
- Do use stretchy fabric. It’s kind of a challenge to get them on. In fact, I think it might take longer to get the shoes on than it takes to wipe the snow off of his feet. (bummer)
- Do make one first before cutting out all the fabric so that if it’s tight, you’ll know. (oops)
- DO NOT USE the wrong leather shoes!!!
Yes, this is where it becomes a major FAIL. My daughter and I have similar boots. I used her perfectly fine boot.
Yes, you read that right. Instead of my worn-out boots, I just merrily cut into her nice, real-leather boots we found on clearance this fall, that were a little big so they still fit.
After a dozen apologies and a few tears, I think she’s agreed to forgive me.
But not sure if I’ll get over it personally. These “inexpensive, resourceful” booties just turned into a pretty pricey pair!
But hey, that’s something crossed off my list. I wonder how expensive this Pinterest thing is really going to end up being!
Next: Actually doing a few exercises that I got around to printing out…
What are you working on?
