Make Your Own Shoes at Home!

This tutorial could also work for high boots. The main difference would be that whoever followed it would have to make the uppers rise higher on the leg; that could call for lasts that would employ more alginate.That said, I have plans to make use of this tutorial to construct boots for myself. Once I do, I mean to add the "I made it" tag.
love your details, thank you so much for sharing! I am making moccasins and medieval moccasins and have been trying to figure out how to do the soles and getting the shape down packed has been a challenge and I am so picky! this last is the missing link I think to perfecting my shoes!! thank you so much! the only thing is, because this is for my business it would be beneficial to have one if it was adjustable to different sizes...

lmao my thoughts exactly
WHAT ARE THOSE!
Fabulous, thanks for the tutorial!!
A couple of great ideas here, I will definitely use some! Just a word of warning: be careful with reusing right foot pattern for the left foot *and the other way around), it's totally not uncommon to have different sizes on different feet. But then again, I guess this should be pretty obvious for those familiar with the problem :) The last is actually not needed for pattern creation as you obviously can use your feet (just put some socks on). I've sewn three pairs of moccasins without ever using one, it depends on the design of your shoes. But it is most useful when sewing uppers to the outsoles. And to those puzzled by how to remove last, I can suggest to untie the lases. The last is just a cast of your foot after all and you'll expect to be able put your feet in and out your shoes ;)
