My apprentice Mallory just finished a new pair of boots for herself. She started these before she came to my shop and she built them all on her own so I can’t take any of the credit. 🙂
I need to have her teach me how to do that cool stitch around the boot above the welt!
I'm a custom cowboy boot maker. I own a business, Sorrell Custom Boots, and I create bespoke cowboy boots using vintage machinery and hand tools. I also own www.sorrellnotionsandfindings.com, a company that specializes in tools, supplies, and leather for the boot and shoe making trade.
Is that a round stitch? It looks like it might be, but I can’t tell for sure from the photo….
She says it’s a Norwegian construction with a chain stitch.
