4. DIY Boot Socks
I love tall boot socks and I needed some in a pinch because my daughter was attending an outdoor event. So, all you need to make a pair is an old sweater, a pair of scissors, and whatever else you want to add to your boot cuffs. These DIY cuffs are a no-sew project too, just snip off the sleeves at a height that works for your leg length and then embellish away or leave them be. The buttons she adds in the second tutorial are just the most precious things I’ve ever seen and gave me ideas for all sorts of other improvements I could make. I’m obsessed with the idea of adding some big pieces of lace and would love to try putting some pearl buttons on there too. These DIY boot socks are in the all-time awesome hall of fame of sweater repurposing.

My daughter has taken up photography and her Dad and I got her a 35 mm Nikon camera for Christmas. She also got some extra lenses from her Grandma and Grandpa so she needed something functional to keep everything in, so I made her this DIY camera tote bag out of soft felt. She completely loves her camera tote bag, and changing purses is super easy!
