Native American Moccasins
Make Native American Moccosins for your next Thanksgiving feast or pagent.
2 Large Pieces of Brown Felt
To begin, fold a large piece of felt in half. Put your left foot on it about 1/2 inch from the fold and one inch from the bottom of the felt. Now trace around the left side and top of your foot- now add about one inch extra all around the tracing. Leave the right side straight- don't trace the right side of your foot.
Now take your scissors and cut out your moccasin. Take your needle and thread and sew up the top and left side of the moccasin.
Cut a slit shaped like a T down the center of the top - (about 2/3 of the length of the top)- of the moccasin.
Now stitch together the heel, make a small cut near the bottom to create a flap to sew it all together.
Now decorate your moccasins with colorful pieces of felt and fabric makers. Enjoy Crafting!
