I have selected one of the MOST SUITABLE HIGH QUALITY OF FRENCH BULL-CALF LEATHER for making comfortable and durable moccasins.
It is full-grain aniline leather characterized by its soft and waxy touch with a natural finish (no acrylic lining). It is dyed in the mass, colors are very stable.
After tanning, it has not undergone any other alteration in order to preserve the authenticity and strength of its natural grain. It is the noblest treatment that can be applied to the skin. It has a thickness of 2 mm to 2.2 mm.
It is treated for better stain and water resistance and complies with very high standards in terms of health and environmental regulations by European law.
What is special about the Baby Moccasins Tutorial?
We will start with the “Moon” moccasins technique and I will show you how to adapt the pattern to make it into a “Leaf” style. The LEAF moccasin is a variation of the MOON moccasin. Instead of having only one piece of leather, it is done in two pieces, which allows for using smaller pieces of leather and 2 colors. Making baby moccasins is a good project to make use of the off-cuts of leather you could have. For the rest, we will use the exact same principle as in others of my patterns, with means standard templates for the front part of the shoe that we combine with a personalized fitting for the heel. This is how you will be able to fit (almost) everyone with patterns based on the width of the feet.
Over the course of 2 hours of teachings in which she demonstrates how to make a pair from beginning to end, she clearly and precisely explains how to make your own moccasins at home with very few simple tools.
We are convinced that even people without prior experience in leather work or sewing can complete this project quite easily.
When purchasing our tutorials, you will gain access to our online platform, where you will be able to watch and replay the videos as many times as you like.
You will also receive an email with the printable patterns and PDF tutorial.
(We have to process your order by hand, please allow up to 24 hours.)
The video tutorial helps to understand the right gesture, whereas the PDF tutorial highlights important details in large images and written explanations. Even after your first pair, it is a useful document to remember how to make them without having to watch all the videos again.
With practice, a pair can be made in less than 2 hours, but it could take about 1 day on the first trial.
Patterns should be printed in A4 or US letters. If you are not able to print the patterns at home, please send us a request.
The tutorials also cover the topics of choosing leather and tools, making soles, and leather conditioners.
We offer extra rubber or leather for soling as an option:

We work with the most prestigious quality of bull-calf leather from France.
It stands out for its natural aspect, its soft and
waxy touch but mostly for its softness, and thickness at the
same time. This leather is very comfortable and safe to wear
on the skin. If well-taken care of with resoling and leather care, it
can withstand years of intensive wear.
Kit for Low Moccasins:
+- 38 x 60 cm / 15" to 23.5"
Can be dry-cleaned with a soft brush or with a wet cloth. Make sure the
shoes are drying quickly and thoroughly if they got wet. You can hang them on a
line for instance.
Regularly nourish the leather with a leather
balm or leather lotion.
They can be resoled with leather or thin compact rubber
sheets to keep the barefoot feel of the moccasins. Soles are simply glued
and can be renewed as many times as needed. A tutorial on this topic is
included in all our moccasins tutorials.
