These booties are made with moose hide but any leather will do. The ones shown are basic without any fancy buttons, beads or fur.
Step 1: Cut Pattern
Tip: cut as close as possible to the edges to save material! Leather can be very pricey!
Step 2: Mark the Halfway Point and Pin
Step 3: Stitch Heel and Beyond
Here, I did a buttonhole stitch. Use any stitch but make sure to use leather sinew or strong thread if you're using leather. If the stitching will be visible, it's recommended to use thread which matches the "look" of your booties (I used blue sinew to match the blue felt inside the booties).
You can also stitch along the top of the booty (which is shown in the image). This keeps the felt to the leather but if you are just using felt, just leather, or adding a trim, then its unnecessary.
Step 4: Continue Stitching
Step 5: Stitch Until It Meets at the Heel
Tip: sinew can be slippery so try an extra knot and/or burn the excess thread after the knots to seal it in place.
Optional: decorative buttons, beads or fur can be added to the booty.
