Very nice! I've seen shoes at the renfair like that and I've always wanted to give them a try, so thanks for the link too! I think I might try a mock up in felt first to get the size right before hacking away at the leather.

Those shoes are also on my to-do list, and it's great to see another version! Where did you find your leather?

Thanks! I used some upholstery leather (thinner than they used), but it was stuff I had in my stash that my uncle gave me. A furniture store was throwing some offcuts out so he saved the bigger pieces for me.

There's a shoe repair shop I want to ask about leather in because I think they might be able to get me thicker pieces. Worth a try anyway!
