I have selected one of the MOST SUITABLE HIGH QUALITY OF FRENCH BULL 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 are Moccasins?

They are soft-soled shoes or barefoot shoes. Made of 100% leather, they act and feel just like a second skin.

They will well protect the feet from sharp objects, dirt, etc; while at the same time allowing you to feel the ground’s texture.

They are suitable for where indoors and outdoors, although they will need to be re-soled once in a while for durability.

Children usually love them as they allow the child to have better balance and agility than with rigid shoes. I advise you to make them quite large so that they are easier to put on, and also in order to prevent putting any constraint on the soft and growing feet of the little ones. Adding a leather lace around the ankle will safely keep them on and permit size adjustments as the feet grow and/or for socks.

-What is special about the KIDS Moccasins Tutorial (NOT INCLUDED HERE)?

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.

Get started with everything at hand by ordering a Starter Kit with a 50% of discount on the tutorials and the patterns.
