I just made my own moccasins.
Totally average weekend activity, right?
You get together with your girlfriends, you drink mimosas on a sunny patio…
And you make your own shoes.
It was all part of a workshop taught by the very patient, very talented Dan of Rickard Guy (who’s moving to New York soon, mes amis, so if you want in on the shoemaking action, make like a kangaroo and jump on it).
He walked us through, um, step by step — from picking our leather to threading our laces. Just look at that craftsmanship.
It floored Leroy, that’s for sure.
I haven’t actually taken them off since I made them.
(Unless you count the Juvenile Diabetes walk, I rocked my runners for that.)
Another thing I haven’t taken off?
My bangle, which made the journey all the way from India (thank you, Anji!).
No. Big. Deal.
What a great way to spend an afternoon! You’re so crafty hehe. Now, is there anyone who can teach you how to make your own Loubies?
Wow! I love moccasins. How long did it take you to make them?
That’s so cool! And they look really comfortable, too.
No big deal?! This is big deal, at least to me. Pretty sure i wouldn’t be able to kick up something so awesome, like what you did.
What a fantastic idea! And a great way to spend your sunny weekend.
I’m so doing this! Thanks for posting. I love moccasins.
Nice work Kelsey! One of the most pleasant after-effects of something like this moccasin workshop is probably telling admirers you made the mocs yourself and watching their jaws drop, yes?
I’m definitely going to make me some moccasins!
Holy moccasins! I want a pair!
wow i want those too! I want to try to make them but i’m afraid they might turn out as horribly as my gr 9 clothing class experiments…
maybe handbag next?
the jewellery is exquisite. Funny enough this weekend I saw a girl walk around in moccasins and wondered if she made them herself or not
awesome! They look great. How much are the workshops?
Oh wow, nice job with those shoes! They really do look comfortable! How sturdy are they? (i.e. is the sole thick enough to walk around in all day?). Definitely impressed.
Amazing work on the mocs, darling!
And that bracelet is exquisite!
This is soooooo cool! Amazing idea and it looks so fun too :)
that bangle is gorgeous. i love the way it catches the light. and holy moccasins! i can’t believe you made your own shoes, now that, is awesome. so you wore them to bed too? haha
I really don’t think anyone can top you in the originality or creativity departments, Kelsey! What a fun way to spend the afternoon!! :)
so cute! I love, I bet they are soooo comfy, no blisters there!
those shoes are really nice. makes me wanna learn how to make one myself.
