Leather moccasins done by hand


Some of the leather things I know how to make & are very comfortable to wear.

Nice moccasins! When you find a comfortable pair, you never want to wear anything else on your feet again.

Karen,
That is so true! I love all the pairs I have. Plus I'm lucky I can make new ones & replace the bottoms when need to. I knew you would like them as much as I do.

I did a small leather item once many years ago, and found it very hard on my hands. Do you have special tools to use to take the strain off your fingers? Gotta protect them for tatting!

Suztats,
I have to adjust alot of things so I can do them. You have to make sure that you have a heavy enough leather hammer to punch the holes. A fork to make the holes sharp enough too. Those are just a few examples. Plus you can put tatting on to leather as well. Just like you do beading or anything else. We'll have to talk more about this if you want. Let me know.
