~ Item for sale is a sewing pattern, not finished moccasins ~
The two piece hightop moccasins were traditional to the plains, woodland and marsh Indians of the United States and Canada. They were highly decorated for ceremonials and best dress but were worn plain for everyday wear.
The most common adornment used on moccasins was done with seed beads (as shown on the front conver), porcupine quills and metal coins.
Using the pattern you can create either the soft or hard sole Indian Plains Hightop Moccasins and there is a section on "Working with Leather" and a glossary of terms included.
Patterns are given for men (full sizes 7 thru 12) and women (full sizes 5 thru 10). If you wear a half-size (e.g., 7 1/2) use the next smallest full size (7) as leather stretches and that size will fit best.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
