Cut the Plastic Bottle into 3 Parts (Sada Plastic Bottle like 7 Up, MTN Dew works great on this craft)
Cut the following shape as base (the length is changeable according to the diameter of the plastic bottles), measure the diameter of the bottle and cut 2x on cardboard.
Place the cut parts of plastic bottle to ensure the size.
Wrap the boot bottom with fabric. Then get prepared for the fabric for wrapping around the plastics. For the front plastic part: Measure the length from the bottom of the plastic to the edge to get the radius (measured length plus 2cm as tolerance) for the circle covering the plastic.
Sew a circle of 1cm in the middle with running stitch, pull tight and tie! Then running stitch the edge of the fabric before covering the plastic, pull tight the thread to wrap the plastic inside.
Get prepared for the fabric size of rear plastic. (Size = The circle length of bottom * The Length of Height)
Wrap the plastic with cut fabric and glue.
Glue all the parts together, and attach the embellishments.
Decorate with ornaments and you are done! Creative?!
