Old boots, new toe

This is a pair of my boots that came in to be resoled and get a new toe shape. I’m always nervous putting an old pair of boots back onto the last because there’s no extra lasting allowance and one small tear would be fatal. But the hard part is over now!

Mail

I’m not sure what the post office thinks of my new title, but I could get used to it. #bootqueen
Also, I wish I could write like this.

Matching belt

This is a belt strip, for a belt to match a pair of boots. Since I’m a boot maker, not a belt maker, now I will send it off and let someone else turn it into a belt. 🙂

Colors

I certainly get to work with pretty colors sometimes. I’m looking forward to making both of these boots.

Quitting time

I think this is a good time to stop and go home.

Tomorrow I’ll build the heels on these boots. They’ll be completed soon!
