Wow! They are very Middle Earth, yet trendy at the same time. Let's all start a Crafster Ugg rebellion!

Fabjou, my sewing machine wasn't expensive but it says it can sew leather. I am sure you could do this with soft leather or suede

I used a stitch marker to get the holes spaced right and an awl to pierce the leather. If it's thin enough you can use a glovers needle which has a triangular sharpened tip to go through the leather, just remember they are extremely sharp!

Thanks for the tip, I guess I should have just broke down and bought an awl to begin with- it didn't seem too thick, but now I know better. I definitely have my share of battle scars from my leather adventures. (Of the crafty nature of course  Cheesy )

Roxy1976, I second your sewing machine comment.  I sewed these seams on a regular, low-end Pfaff, with a sharp leather needle.  I did stick the needle into a block of wax, first, but the leather was dry enough that I don't think it was necessary.  On the suede itself, it's garment weight, and I used a jeans needle and just sewed.



And then sewed the leather onto a suede coat.  Again, sharp leather needle, and had to play around with the tension on a test piece, first.


The leather cuff in the pictures is about the thickness of a moccasin slipper, maybe even a little thicker. My machine wouldn't work on the sole of a "boot" moccasin, though - the thick, hard leather for the sole of an "outdoor" shoe needs to be hand sewn or professional machine stitched.  I have an awl and stitching pony that I have yet to use - but now I'm motivated!

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

You haven't had enough coffee until you can thread your machine while it's running!

Thanks Smiley to you and everyone! I know what you mean though, I'v wanted to make a pair of mocs for years, ever since I first got started in leatherwork, and this is the first one I've seen that was fully comprehensible!
