1  DIY Moccasin Kit with some personal alterations! in Shoes: Completed Projects by arisuchan on: January 29, 2011 07:41:03 PM
This is a DIY moccasin that I made a while ago, but decided to post it here to get some comments and opinions from fellow craftsters.

I was browsing around Michael's one day and came across a DIY: Moccasins kit. I thought it would be something fun to keep myself busy with. It was about $15.99, but since I had a coupon it only cost me about $10 dollars or so with tax.

This is what the kit came with:

When completed:

Upon completion, I felt that the final project lacked serious character and wanted to do something more. After looking at other handmade moccasins, I was feeling inspired.

I drove back to Michael's again in hopes of searching for something that would give my Moccasins what it needed and I found this:

Who would have known that leather jewelery would go a long way!

I added some embellishments so it wouldn't look so plain. These beads were sitting in my arts and crafts bin for a long time and figured it would be the perfect opportunity to use them.

As you can see, the stringing on the left Moccasin is different from the right because I ran out of string and didn't want to go buy more if I only need such a small amount. My boyfriend suggested that I put a charm on the back of only one shoe to make it unique and I do say that it looks good.

So here you have it, a completed Moccasins project. I hope this will inspire you to go out and make your own! Smiley

*Side Note*: I also wanted to mention that these Moccasins kit didn't have soles on the bottom of the shoes, so I went to a local shoe repair store and had one slapped on.

What do you think?

Hello All,

I made these originally for mother's day and then I realized that this would make good decor. It would also be a fun project for your own home or a gift.

I thought I would share this with your guys to get some feedback. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks for looking!  Smiley
