Creating a cozy liner for a paw without needing a shoe or upholstery foam is something many professional makers have been trying to accomplish for many years for their clients. Learn how to make professional and durable lined and stuffed costume footpaws with both indoor or outdoor finishing!

It includes a detailed tutorial with step-by-step instructions. Tutorial text is written in English. Included is a pattern for a footpaw liner. The pattern itself is designed to be printed. Included is letter-sized (8.5x11 inch) and a4-sized (210x297 mm) formatted PDFs for printing.

Topics discussed in this premium tutorial include:
• Making Liners (Liner Pattern included!)
• Creating an inner sole
• Assembling the inner sole and liner
• Making stuffed indoor footpaws
• Making stuffed outdoor footpaws
• Deluxe soling installation
• Refurbishing existing footpaws

This is the culmination of what I've figured out so far on the topic of liners and soles for footpaws, shared with you in this premium guide!

The techniques shared make a nice and comfortable lightweight footpaw that your heel does not slide backwards in, and additionally if you decide to breathe new life into worn out footpaws the same techniques can be utilized for refurbishing paws! I have worked hard to create and test these techniques, create the liner pattern, and write up its tutorial!

It is highly appreciated if you use or adapt these techniques on projects, that you share credit that you learned it right here from using my patterns and guides. That way others can discover my tutorials and make their own footpaws, too!!

I combined this tutorial with Matricies' "Fursuit Plantigrade Footpaws" pattern because I wanted to make outdoor soles that would be more durable. Detailed instructions and material list makes this easy to understand and follow. I could see using this tutorial to upgrade or refurbish existing footpaws as well. Another excellent tutorial that any casual or aspiring professional fursuit maker will very likely refer to often. Thanks!

I'm really starting to like this footpaw tutorial that doesn't require the use of any shoes and a better way of how to make them even nicer than ever before. I haven't tried it out myself yet on anything but it looks very interesting and one nice "Swiss Army" style thing to have amongst all the other tutorials I have from you I might as well give it a try on my next big project I'll try myself being Petabyte my Dutch angel dragon that I might as well try to get myself working on once again. What I even love the most about it is the part on how to replace outdoor soles on footpaws seeing how I'm mostly careful with RinRin's own footpaws from Tunny but is still one nice thing to have. I'm still quite happy as always with all of your stuff and I so look forward to any other tutorials you might come up with pretty soon!

The pattern was excellent and had very clear instructions to help walk you through constructing your first set of footpaws! If you need the footpaw pattern itself, this isn’t what you want, but it’s super helpful to make a nice inside!

Clear and easy to follow instructions, lots of photos, and plenty of helpful tips. I've been struggling with making durable outdoor feetpaws, and this is exactly what I needed to read. I can't wait to try these techniques out!
