Description

This tutorial will teach you the techniques to hand-make your own leather moccasins with a very few tools. Large images will help you to understand each step along with precise explanations.

Inspired from the tradition of the Native Americans, these moccasins are soft-soled shoes with a personalized fitting suitable to wear everywhere.

Besides being beautiful and extremely comfortable shoes, this is the best design of footwear that I have come across with for many reasons: it’s one single piece of leather, hand-stitch with very simple tools, there is very little stitching, the stitch does not touch the ground, each pair is individually-fitted from a universal pattern for a perfect fit, it’s a style that suits various fashions and environments, they hold very well to the feet and offer very good protection, leather is a durable natural material, it keeps in contact with the Earth, offering the same health benefits as walking barefoot, leather is also a breathable material that prevents you from sweating and having smelly feet, etc.

I believe anyone can complete this tutorial without previous experience in leather work. One pair can be made in only 2 hours with a bit of practice. Patterns are included, in different sizes, so that you can make them for anyone.

From the techniques you learn in this tutorial, you will be able to get creative and start making other leather items with the off-cuts for example but you could also make these in other materials like felt…

    Not enough room here for my full, and fair review.
    This takes a bit more modification than described.
    Worth it if you know what to do and have the materials to sacrifice to the process.
    The tutorial could be touch up a bit, but understandable. The patterns should be cleaned up, which I did after printing.
    For someone not already on a path to making shoes, or adept with leather work, be patient.
    This product could go from being OK to excellent with minimal effort.
    This being said, I do not regret making this purchase. Thanks!

    The pattern and instructions aren’t as clear as I was hoping, but once I got it figured out it worked out pretty well. Sellers communication was fast and polite.
