Your best bet is to get Whispering Wind magazine and look for the back issues on moccasin making. They also sell a VERY good video on moccasins. www.whisperingwind.com??

Crazy Crow has a very good selection of books and videos about making moc's. Also if you can get a copy of an old Whispering Winds they have books and videos for sale also.

There are a lot of excellent products out on the market to help you with making plains style moccasins.

1) The video "How to Make Moccasins Vol. 1
Plains Indian hard sole style" is excellent for learning moccasin construction. It shows you everything from
making your own pattern to how to put
your moccs together.

2) I have to agree with using the info found
in Laubin's book, The Indian Tipi. There are many good suggestions for what to do when making moccs like using neatsfoot oil
to make the soles more flexible.(This helps when you are trying to turn your moccs right side out.

3) There is a Missouri River Pattern offered by both Crazy Crow, Written Heritage, and several other companies. This pattern is excellent being that it also gives you suggestions for the layout of your beads according to Lakota and Cheyenne styles of
moccs. In my opinion, it is also a lot quicker to fit your feet to this pattern than it is to fiddle around with making your own pattern.

4) Unless you plan to use rawhide for your soles, there is a really thick, white latigo(not the stuff sold by the companies
which looks like it would wear out in a heart beat). The last time I bought some, it was at a Tandy Store. Soles made out of
this latigo should last pretty long and won't stain the uppers of your moccs.

The Laubin's book, The Indian Tipi, is available through Crazy Crow and other mail order companies. When I bought it, I went to a local bookstore (Borders).

If you are looking for a cheap way of getting a pattern, the Missouri River pattern is
$6.95 via Written Heritage (the same people that produce Whispering Wind Magazine). It tells you everything you need to know about putting a pair of moccs together.

Here's their number: 1-800-301-8009

They may also have "The Indian Tipi".

I don't know of any sites that have directions for moccasin construction.

I hope this helps. http://www.powwows.com/ubb/smile.gif
