The next two pairs

If I get to work in the shop tomorrow (no promises) I’ll put these two pairs of boots on the last.

Inseaming is my meditation

I took a break from creating boot tops and inseamed a pair of boots today.

The view from the back

You really needed to see the back side of the purple stained glass boot tops.

On second thought

You remember how I announced that the Thunderbird tops were completed? Yeah, there’s been a small wrinkle. The client has one Short Heel measurement larger than the other, so not only are these tops asymmetrical (Thunderbirds reversed to face each other), there’s a defined Right and Left boot top, and I got the back panels reversed. I can trim the larger one down to make it the smaller one, but I have to remake the larger one. I wonder if the client would like to have the now absolutely useless wrong way one as Art? 😁

Thunderbird

Thunderbird boot tops are completed and I’m ready to begin building boots.

Process

All of those little pieces of leather on each side go together to create the design.
