I had some time off on News Years, and decided to sew a pair of gaiters. I needed another set for either myself or my son. I decided to give my son my old set, and sew a new set for me. I used fabric I already had and only purchased the velcro and hooks. I did a video of the steps I took.

Thanks for taking the time to make and post the video. Those came out great. I'm going to have to make some of those for myself one of these days!

+1 awesome

Great video start to finish. Its a big help when starting a new project. I have some material on my sewing table right now for a couple pairs of smaller gaiters for the wife and I. How do you think a Velcro strap wrapping partially around on the top would work instead of a string tie. Maybe sewn to something like 3/4 inch elastic webbing. Just thinking out loud.

I hear you when you say watching the sewing part can be boring but check this guy out. Not so boring when he is sewing the long seams. Man I wish I could sew like that. I bet every seam is straight as an arrow.

thanks again, jimmyb

There is a reason I don't sew that fast....man.

The velcro on the top should work. I was thinking about that as well. You just have to make sure it is adjustable.
