  1. Hi All, I'm a newish shoe/boot maker in AZ, and I wanted to introduce myself and see who else out there is making footwear. My style is a moccasin style shoe/boot, that is patterned around making a cast of the person's foot. So, each one is built for the individual's foot. I'm in the process of working on some sandals, and little bags and wallets. I would love to connect with other shoe makers, especially if you're in the Southwest. Rai (like the bread)
  2. I've been making lots of moccasins lately. I found out long ago that moccasins, as they are usually designed, with a soft leather sole, wear out in a very short period of time. So I have been putting a hard sole on the bottom of the moccasins I make. I make the sole out of the heaviest veg-tanned tooling leather I have on hand, preferably 8 oz. or thicker. But that creates another problem, because veg-tanned leather is very slippery. So I have been covering the leather sole with neoprene or similar. The leather sole is stitched to the bottom of the moccasin, but the neoprene is only cemented. When I was living in Peru, I used a contact cement that I bought down there and it worked pretty good. The moccasins I'm using now I made 7 years ago and the neoprene is just now beginning to separate. So my question is, what is the best adhesive to use to bond the veg-tanned leather with the neoprene?
  3. Hello, I have a pair of these: https://www.minnetonkamoccasin.com/men/styles/slippers/pile-lined-softsole-men And just for fun, I wanted to make another pair, but was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a similar sheepskin? I am guessing it's a 5/6 suede with the sheep fur on? Thanks!
  4. This is a pair of moccasins I just finished for a friend of mine, Lester McCoy. Lester is a member of the Miami Indian tribe and has been after me for a couple of years to make him a pair so he can wear them to dance in the powwows he attends. Lester is also a knife maker by trade and said he would trade me some of his wares for some of mine. Since I have more knives than I can use, I declined his offer but he kept after me until I said, “Lester, I’ll just make you a pair and you can give me whatever you think they’re worth after you get them”. He hasn’t even received them yet and I’ve already gotten two handmade knives in the mail. Lester wanted them flashy so I made this pair pretty colorful. My wonderful wife, Leah, insisted that they needed beadwork on them and did that job all by her lonesome. I have to admit, the beads really do add something to the finished product. I’m just glad it wasn’t me sewing the little dudes on! The body of the moccasins is 8 oz buffalo leather. The trim, lacing and fringe are deer leather and the heel and toe caps are Honduran caiman. The lace eyelets are deer antler. Everything was sewn together by hand using artificial sinew. Besides the satisfaction of making something for a friend, I also received an invitation to bow hunt on Lester’s farm in Kansas. That, to me, is payment enough. Maybe this fall I’ll have some different pictures to share involving me, Lester, and some meat for the freezer. Darren
  5. Hello, I'm sure this question has been asked here before, but I looked through the threads and didn't find what I was looking for. I am considering starting up a small business selling leather items I have sewn. I will be starting with children's moccasins. I have a basic sewing machine that is doing an ok job of sewing the leather, but I know I need to buy a better machine if I am going to make this a business. I am wondering what the best bang for your buck is when it comes to a machine that will sew leather well. I don't have thousands to spend on a new machine. But I do want something that will get the job done.
  6. Hello there, this is my first post. I did try to find another thread on this topic but was not successful (so forgive me if this question is repeated elsewhere). I've just begun sewing baby moccasins on my home sewing machine (I do hope to upgrade to an industrial one eventually). I'm working with regular cowhide at the moment (still practicing) but plan to upgrade to ecopell veg tanned leather soon. My question is that I'm not sure what thread to use. For my practice moccasins, I've been using regular cotton (#40) thread but i know plain cotton will not last on leather. The leather is around 1 1/2 mm (1/16") but will mostly be sewn double thickness and occasionally triple (at the ends). Most of the advice I've read for home machine sewing indicates #69 polyester thread. I hate to use polyester with a high end leather but I do want to use the correct thread for the application. So should i use #69 polyester? Are there advantages over nylon or rayon? Thank you! Kate.
  7. These are a pair of moccasins I made for my wife for christmas. They are buffalo lined with sheerling, with the tips being rabbit lined with sheerling. They have a thick cowhide soul. -JonnyRocket
  8. howdy, y'all, I'm Wulf Zeiler. Some folks in the SCA, Kingdom of Ansteorra (Oklahoma & Texas), know me as THL Bjoulf Jahrnhamr, and I've been a leather crafter, bladesmith, and armorer most of my life. About 7 years ago I moved to Australia and got married, and now I'm starting a small custom leather shop here in Adelaide. In my time, I've done it ALL in leather, from saddlemaking to leather combat armor.You name the tool, i've probably made a case for it. Holsters and scabbards, particularly left handed versions, vests, chaps, wallets, belts, handbags, fetish gear, and many others too numerous to list. I've worked at everything in tooling and embossing from Stohlman-style western traditional to customized Celtic knotwork and zoomorphics. I've made cases for cell phones, Ebook readers, saddle bags, tool rolls, moccasins and sandals of all kinds, you name it, I've probably already made one. If I haven't, gove me the details and specs and I'll give it a try. I'm an old school, 'see it in your head, then make it with your hands' crafter, and there's nothing I won't take a shot at. I was born in America, last lived in Jacksonville, FL, and am now a citizen of Australia.
  9. I am relatively new to this forum, but had been lurking around for some time gathering information, tips, ideas, etc....Well I read an EXCELLENT tutorial that someone had posted, here it is http://paleoplanet69...ns#.UVmeVDff4nO and if definitely changed me!! I set about reading it over & over 20 to 30 times before I actually bought my first item and from there I started to get my thoughts & plans together and even after having purchased everything I need to attempt this.......I took a few days off and seriously thought about it. and why it's so important to me to make these. I mean, c'mon, it's just a pair of freekin leather slippers more or less.... My S.C.A.personea is of a Viking ( 794 A.D. ) by the name of Hrothgar Sonfiord. I also have a son 12, his name is Luki Sonfiord, and is coming along quit well with a blade. So here are a few pix of my progress as I made my first Turn Shoe....I plan to add some flourishments to these, or maybe leave them be and just make a new fancier pair. I'm just not sure, there is so much more I want to do to them. Iunno.....please leave comments & feedback, I'm a big boy and can handle criticism!!! Thank you, Robert
