I have three pairs of boots to inseam–this mens size 11 and two pairs of ladies size 6. The larger the boot, the more stitches there are, and the more stitches there are, the longer it takes. In the spirit of doing the hard things first, I inseamed the largest pair of boots today.
My newsletter for March was written in memory of our sweet dog Winston. We lost him Monday evening.
I told myself I couldn’t go home until I lasted this pair of boots. I lasted one, said the Boot Maker’s Prayer (Please match, PLEASE MATCH), lasted the second one, and they did. I’m outta here.
I like the boots at this stage; everything is so neat. Next I’ll be side seaming…
Here’s a link to my YouTube show for the month of March.
“It’s a Boot Life”
I got to work in my studio today! I sewed, and hammered, and listened to music… it was great!
