DIY boot storage bag from an old shirt

I bought some very snazzy red boots while I was on vacation, but they aren’t the winter type so they have to go into storage for now.

I save an old, long sleeved work shirt of mine and 2 empty paper towel rolls for the project. I only made one mistake which I will highlight in bold so you don’t do it too.

keep the pair of boots together

Instructions

Turn shirt inside out.

Cut off sleeves.

Sew sleeve holes and neck hole shut.

This is where I goofed: TURN SHIRT RIGHT SIDE OUT BEFORE SEWING A LINE DOWN THE MIDDLE TO MAKE 2 POUCHES FOR YOUR BOOTS.

Fold in raw edges of sleeves and sew shut, leaving the already hemmed cuff part open.

Insert empty paper towel cardboard roll.

*The cuff part of the sleeve is left open so you can replace the cardboard roll if needed.

Put the covered cardboard roll inside the boot to hold its shape and put each boot in its own side of the shirt-bag.

Store until Spring.
