  • Toddler Moccasins

    Has anyone had any experience with the baby and child moccasin kits that are out there? (ie. crazycrow.com) I think my daughter is too small for a child one but too big for a baby one and I can't seem to find any "toddler" kits out there.

    Just a fast hint, this works for everyone. Take a kit and take the pattern out for the sole and trace the foot on it, then add an inch for wee kids. For adults about 1.5 inches. Then photo copy in either a reduced zoom or enlarged zoom. The photocopier is your friend and this way you can collect various sizes and not have to but 20 patterns. Then collect them in a binder with separate sleeves for each size you make. I even cut them out and pasted them on vinyl sheeting and kept them that way!
    if you do a repeat pattern I make plastic forms for each part, even for wood working I have stencils that I created this way!

    Tracing it out on the leather then is the easy part with a good piece of dressmakers chalk! Nice sharp edge and comes off easy!
    Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

          What do you use to keep your bells on???
          by spottedeagle
          Just trying to get ideas. I made a set of sleigh bells for my ankles, and used hard leather boot lace to run throught the bells to hold them on. Well after a couple of powwows one of my bells fell off. So I'm trying to find out if there is something better to use. Or does everyone else have the...

          Sagging Leggings - Search for the right material
          by butterflypulse
          I read a thread about leggings and tall mocs, which reminded me of an issue I've had to deal with. The problem I've had with my leggings is that they keep sagging as well. I used canvas as a base, with cotton lining and satin exterior, but when I sweat they get wet on inside and sag. I've hear hat...
