First I create the pattern for my little bird and mark the patterns onto the appropriate colors of leather, then I cut out those pieces very precisely and skive them, and finally I put them together. Now I have a flock of birds ready for the boot tops!
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.
