Sewing machine? Never met one yet that could whipstitch Tongue These are all done by hand, takes about a day Smiley If you use a machine you won't be able to turn the seams properly.

Wonderful - I want a pair just for the reasons mentioned. I hate shoes and go barefoot whenever possible -- a trait apparently inherited by my son who wears nothing but sandals.

you did such a great job! very professional looking. and weird timing- i was just reading one of la'mour's sacket books and every time the character mentioned making moccasins i kept thinking "i wonder if it's really very hard to do?...." i think i will definitely give this a go- and neat website too. thanks!  Grin

Only thing I would suggest is make your first pair from heavyweight denim or vinyl, something like that. Then you can adjust the pattern until it fits perfectly without wasting a hide Smiley

Very cool... and I like the idea of using demin or another type of heavy fabric to give the moc a different look/feel.  Smiley

Very cool idea. Love your execution. Are they part of a costume, for daily wear or both? Smiley

Think I'll try these in denim, with little sole under it. Thanks for the idea!

These are really easy to make. Be sure to use waxed thread (mine's artificial sinew) as the wax makes it so much easier to pull through.

They are part normal wear, part costume Smiley I'm going to try and make a pair just for costume though, as I'm a member of a new Mountain Man living history group
