DIY Boot Tutorial: Moccasin Masterclass
DIY Boot Tutorial: Moccasin Masterclass:
This DIY boot tutorial is sponsored by Tandy Leather.
Their mission is “To teach and inspire the art of leathercrafting, one person, one class, one neighborhood, one community at a time.” I’m inspired every time I open the catalog. I want to make so many projects. This project is one of my favorites and I am glad I can share my tips and tricks from years of experience.
I’m Teri Edmonds and I have been in the shoe industry for over 18 years. In this tutorial, I demonstrate the Plains Boot Moccasin from Tandy Leather. As a shoe designer, I have looked for simple patterns that I could do from home. I liked this pattern so much that I taught courses on it. I continue to make and sell the boots to my custom order clients. If you want to learn more about me, visit my About Page.
This course includes a beginner and an advanced boot. The beginning tutorial follows the instructions provided in the pattern pack. I adjust the hand stitching some and I prefer mine without the fringe. The advanced tutorial uses glue and machine stitching instead of hand stitching. I used my new Janome 3000 stitcher for the project. I have included a list of the supplies used in this video along with their part numbers for easy ordering.
