There is someone in Oregon who makes purses out of them. I saw them recently on one of my many mind-wandering trips around the internet. I'll see if I can find the link.

This be it: http://www.diamond57.com/

How cool is that! Now to find a shoe shop that can sew this up for me. My Texan DH has many pairs of boots that he can no longer wear due to his back problems. They were so beautifully made that he didn't want to just trash them and have been in his closet forever.

WOW! went to that link and saw the price of those purses. I have a pair of Dan Post boots, still in the box and look like new. was planning to put Hen and Chicks in them, but now think they will just have to stay on the closet shelf...now, what am I keeping them for? No way do I know how to make the purses. Oh well...maybe someday someone will have a simple something to do with my boots.

I think that all we would need to do is cut the leather and provide the rings for the handle, maybe a belt for the leather part of the handle. My local shoe repair guy sold his sewing machine years ago. I need to look to the surrounding villages to see if I can find anyone that wants to do this for/with me. I'm sure the thrift stores have a good supply of boots. I now know what the gals in the family are getting for Christmas. :-)

Yeah, Dahtzu, The site's picture showed the shoe part of the boot sitting on the table. The bottom of the purse and any sections would have to be cut out of another peice of leather, along with the tabs that hold the rings that holdd the straps and maybe the strap or a strap used as a backing for a belt used as the strap.
Clear?

Clear as mud?

Those are neat. I have some cow bow boots with ivy, mother&hen's and other plants planted in them in the yard as well as work boots. But for nice boots I wouldn't want to do that. I am going to watch this thread to see what all you come up with.

I just cut the good leather off the top of a pair of dress boots last Saturday. Just didn't want to throw away the leather that some poor cow donated. I think I'll watch this thread for a few ideas also.

I was going to make a planter out of them but the leather wasn't thick enough and they were going to be top heavy.

Thanks!

My old Treadle sewing machine sews through leather like butter. You just have to make sure to use a good sharp leather needle. It's been years since I used it but I used to make leather slippers and tooled leather purses on it.

I never tried using a leather needle in my modern machine but it would probably do fine also.

I do sew patches on leather jackets & vest on my newer machines using a leather needle. But its softer leather then boot leather . I dont think the motor has the power to do the boot leather.

I have never sewn leather, but I don't think my newer machine has enough clearance under the presser foot... and I know the smoke would just be rollin' of the motor!!! Not much cowboy boot action in these parts so I'll have to wait to see pics of what "y'all" come up with :-D

You may be right about the new machines not having enough power for heavy leather. But the old treadle went through 3 layers of thick belt leather easily... gues they don't make em like they used to :~)

I saw cowboy boots for a kids room.. a vase sitting in the middle to raise things up a bit and in it were pencils, pens, ruler, etc. (I assume a vase... I didn't look ..guess it could have been a tin can or anything)

I guess the boots can hold kleenex also!

If you have a bed frame with 'legs' you could set the legs in the boots for a kids room -- or even chair would look great painted bright red with the boots for feet.

Will have to take a pic of mine!! I had an old pair laying around and was gonna put some hen and chicks in them but could never find any when it was time to plant..

then this fall I got myself into a mess when I bid on some silk flowers on Ebay and I forgot to ask if they came from a non- smoking home... well the price was so good I bid and before I knew it I was glued to a box of loverly flowers with a "stank" to high heaven... so ok.. well you get the idea...

I made an arrangement in each and now they are FENCE hanging OUTSIDE! LOL!

If its not too iced over in the morning, I will shoot the pair for you.. right about now, they been outside for a good month and well... winter set in!..who knows if they will ever come inside again! (I rather doubt it!!)

I have heard of tradition when the saddle tramps pass away, they usually hang their boots upsidown in the stirrups on the saddle of his (hern) horse at the end of the cowpersons trail...

Hmmmm... Happier Trails to you as old Gene Autry would say!!

Blossombuddy, Love you pics. and the remarks. Don't you just love this weather? We live in the country and we have an inside-out side thermometer. The warmest it was today was -6*. The crazy part is we just got back last Sun from 3 1/2 weeks in Texas and Alabama. We kinda do things"bass-ack-wards"! But, they even had snow in Houston while we were there! Still trying to remember why we came back home. It is always good to get home tho. But, there can be exceptions!lol At least we have electric so far. There is so much ice on the lines and trees that with the wind a lot of people around are with out electric. I sure feel for those poor people out east who have been with out for quite a while. Guess I should not complain.

kdm1000,

I sure feel for those folks on the east coast and all those sufferign this lousy weather ... God love 'em and a
pile of prayers. We suffered an 8 hour power failure here a couple days ago, but that was not too bad.

I was doing worse weeks before when I was having to run space heaters because we were not able to pay off our LP bill and the company would not fill until it could be payed off...makes you sick to think how the big powers like that can literally freeze ya out of house and home just because your income can't reach like a rich guy.

I ran those heaters for nearly a month and had to turn them off at night to sleep and off when I would leave the house and for fear of fire. And yeah, speaking of that... one of my space heaters went bad on me and if it was not for my dog alerting me to it having a problem, the whole place could have gone up in smoke.

This weather is DOWNRIGHT a crisis. Thank GOD in heaven for our church because if it was not for them, we would have not got the LP bill paid down to where we could have filled it if it was not for their assistance.

Now I am gonna take a licking from the electric company and then after the first of January, the darned bills are set to increase some
40 percent because of them going broke. SHEESH.. like us poor people can just run out and print money even if we are already working.. makes no sense to me...the whole thing is a riled up mess.

And here we all are trying to stay warm and fuzzy at this time of year. Kinda sad and kinda hard to laugh, but at best good friends and all try to support each other through the tough times.

Just think about those poor cowboys in the old cold days.. whooo-ey well, great guns, if they can survive this nasty weather so are we. That is, with help from our friends!

That is why I made my "stinkies" into fence hangers...they were top heavy! I just ran a wire through the boot pull and made a loop.

I also cut the boots down with
a slit in the front to be able to pack all those flowers in them!

O packed the boots with block foam to stick the silks in!

I like combining silks with dry botanicals...

Next time I buy on eBay though I am gonna have to stick a label on my forehead...to ask on if the silks come from a non smoking environment.. some people ask too if there are any pets in the home...allergies are noooo fun!

I once got a bakelite BROOCH from eBay that about knocked me OVER when I opened the box with cigarette smoke! I have asthma, and that was NOT working for me...YIK!!!.

Well... I had not paid that much for the brooch/pin (nor had I asked if it was from a smoke free home) so I put it in a ziplock bag and covered it in Fabreeze. Amazingly enough two days later when I opened the ziplock...and rinsed the pin off the smell was COMPLETELY GONE...lol

I tried washing the silks, tried Fabreeze, did not work...*sigh*!

I don't know what the smoke was from but it literally smelled like burning rubber and hair. Jeez!

OMG...sounds like they went through a FIRE!

Bummer... I also have one of those O-zone filters which helps nuke nasty smells that are carbon based

A couple years ago a mouse got into our miles and miles of fake Christmas boughs (and they smelled to high heaven). They could never be used in the house again, but we went out and tossed them on the back fence (for a year...lol) and the smell eventually came out. We use them on the fences now, but not in here.

LOL!! OMG mice! Know them too well! I once lived in a housetrailer out in the country and the boogers would come up my stove and sit there watching us eat dinner!! LOL

I can remember one scampering across my bed one night.. OMG.. about dang near gave me a heartache.

The mice in the house were bad, but we had RATS in the barn there and holy cow! The odor...*t*h*u*d*.. keel ya over!

I was surrounded by cornfields...

Ok, here's another retake on my stinkies! I think I can touch up the background to get rid of the top of the aircondition that is behind them.

brr, I am in sunny CA and it is too cold here for me today...foggy and 41l/60 hi. I have made birdhouses from the cowboy boots and I made a lamp. I love the red boots to make lamps from. I am looking for the cross made from boots, just a pic. The link here is now gone. Did anyone keep a pic of it.
