Vintage Christmas Boots Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Vintage Christmas Boots 
Free Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

The First time I saw The Christmas Granny Square Boots
 was in the Early 1970's when My Friend's Mom was 
making them. She put crumpled news paper in the toe
 of the boot. I think she used big pickle
 or mayonnaise jars to hold cookies she had made.

A few years later I was given one from my 
Sunday School Teacher.
She put tissue paper in the toe of the boot, and
 a big paper cup in the leg of the boot.
 She filled it with candy. The old Fashioned hard
 kind that tasted like cloves and cinnamon.
I pulled out that boot the other day, 
and decided to share it with you, with a modern twist.

I used Sparkle yarn From Hobby Lobby
/ I Love This Yarn Metallic and 
I Found these jars at my Local Grocery Store, 
And they are Perfect.
