As to the boot, it's very simple. On one side, I painted it like a button-top boot. On the other, I painted it with a bunch of one-stroke folk-art posies and added something like "Happy Haunting" or "Welcome Fall" or something like that. Unfortunately, I can't find my photo of the flowered side. It was all in purple, orange, and acid green.
The boot is partially stuffed, then fake gourds and leaves are placed in the top.
The toe has been modified on the pattern, because I felt it curled up too much. But if you want it curly, for say an "elf" boot for Xmas, then you can elongate it a bit and make it skinnier. A rusty jingle bell would be a cute addition for the elf boot!
Hope you enjoy.
