Or you could make booties out of frosted cupcakes:

HEY FOXY MOMMA....
I THINK THE REASON IT ISN'T WORKING IS BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE SUPPORT IN THE BOOTIE SO THAT IT WOULD HOLD AND HARDEN A LITTLE...
THANKS SO SO MUCH JAN!! YOU ROCK!

It might hold up better if you switch to gumpaste instead of fondant?

If you do not have gumpaste but have gum tex or tylose. add 1 tsp to about 1 lb of fondant and let rest a bit. It should firm it up.

If you do not have either, let the rolled and cut fondant firm up a bit by letting it sit uncovered.

I've used saran wrap rolled up and paper towels balled up for support... I agree with letting the fondant dry out a tiny bit before you assemble if you don't have gumpaste
