I'm  brazilian myself... at teenager sleep overs we'd make it on a pan (we don't like much microwave for that) and eat it directly from the plate still hot Tongue 5 girls with spoons and a plate. Oh my. Those were the days!
3  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / From old coat parts to mocassins...a birthday present on: August 03, 2009 07:18:55 PM
So my aunt's birthday is today, and my uncle asked if I'd take the old parts of a coat he found and turn into a pair of moccasins (spelling?) for her.
He had a tute - it was more like you had to be a psychic to understand the thing - from a 70's Reader's Digest book, kinda like the 'Disney's boy scout manual' thing. After trying hard to solve the instructions (and I'm a blond!), I came up with a pattern using my aunt's boot sole for the size (it was a surprise gift).

Well it was a challenge to figure out where to cut the pattern, because the coat parts were almost a patchwork. Huh When I was sewing the calf part, there was some old leather and it started to tear where the needle was sewing. Undecided

I broke 3 needles, and had to finish the last foot by hand. And when the third needle broke and I was taking it out, half of it dropped inside the machine, so now I have to open it to retrieve it.

Oh well. It isn't heard to make, once you get the hang of it - or choose a fabric that your machine will handle. If someone wants, I can come up with a tutorial.

Please don't mind the crappy phone camera pictures, my camera died a long time ago.

And they look better in person. I had to apply another patch on the calf area to make it stronger.

I love the ribbon!
I just think maybe you should use a black thread next time... to match the fabric. (= my opinion, though!
