Miss Witch's Ogrehide Boots
Miss Witch met an ogre named Clyde,
who quite unexpectedly died.
He was useless in life.
Always caused others strife.
But, his hide made fine boots when dried.
Miss Witch then went for a ride
in her new boots of green ogrehide.
She blushed top to bottom
when asked where she got'em.
"Off an ogre named Clyde", she replied.

New Witch BOO't finished and available on Etsy! This is a small sized one standing about 8" tall and 7.5" long and is painted to look like an ogre's hide all stitched up into a boot. It has an eye peeking out on one side and a colorful spider on the other with a few flies landing everywhere on the sides and tongue.
There are two more flies on the tongue in front. I used a brown nylon cord for the lace. I had thought about using a color that would match the bright green stitches, but decided the brown would tie in the tree stump heel better.
I'll be trying to finish up some larger BOO'ts next along with some costuming. One boot may have a haunted house theme. Hope to have at least one more completed by Halloween. **Knocks on ogre-hide boot's faux wood heel** ;)
