Another pair of moccasins I made
« on: August 30, 2020, 11:42:39 AM »
Finished these up yesterday for a friend of mine. My wife cut out my patterns and asked, "Who are you making these for? The Jolly Green Giant?" Dude has a large foundation to stand on!

These are made from 8 oz. bison hide and are trimmed with New Zealand red deer hide. I sewed everything up by hand using artificial sinew.




Only one more project to go then I'm all caught up!
