I should, but would hate to spend extra time in de-threading & sewing. I'd want to put them on some happy feet right away. Since lane stitch is done completely from one side on leather, I can't see where beading prior to assembly would make a difference. Figure you can wear through mocs pretty quickly & the second pair might be ready about the time I make a hole.

Beetle, in the interview you mentioned that your mother used to do 3-D beading. I am working on another image of a buffalo. I drew the buffalo with some background like he is on the Plains with grasses and a few boulders in the background. This will be for my brother's birthday present. I want to make the buffalo stand out in a 3-D effect. How is this done?

The 3-D beaing is the type that uses wire to make items similar to Christmas tree ornanments. It is not applied to a meterial, much like applique work. The only solution I would conceive is to add more material beneath the images you want raised.

That sounds like it might work. By padding under the buffalo it will bring him forth a little. I can do the applique' beading first for the full image, a little embroidery for the grasses, then when I frame it, put padding under the buffalo and an outline of beadwork around the buffalo and make sure I stitch this outline work through all layers -- that should pop him up a bit. Thanks!

Beetle, how are your moccasins coming along? I have never made hard sole mocs, only center seam soft mocs.

They're not right now. Too many other tasks have been filling my time. While going through my leather pile, I did uncover an old pair of plainsman/over-the-calf mocs that need a new sole. That could be a simple project...

I have some old mocs that need a new sole. The tops are fine and the beading is ok. How would I go about replacing the soles?

If it's just the sole, you can cut the stitches carefully and use the old one as a pattern for a new sole. The hardest part is getting the holes on the new soles to match up as closely as possible.

I don't know how particular you want to be on matching the leather, but it will be almost impossible to find a perfect match. I've seen re-soled mocs with a darker leather sole and I thought it looked nice.

One thing I want to try to find is some rubber sole plates to attach to the 2 pair of Minnetonka mocs I found at resale stores. Even with the double inserts, I still have to be careful where I step to prevent rock bruises. I wear through mocs quickly. A little extra expense to help these bargain finds last longer and provide additional protection for my feet is worth it.

Not a hard project if the tops are the running or whip stitch pucker toe type. lcp is absolutely on track to use the old one as a pattern. That is my intentions when I finally get to re-sole my *experienced 'plainsman-style' - Seems I have a short-notice wedding to prepare for (mid-May) & family is coming in from all over the US to the -B-hacienda. Gotta prepare & clean...

If the mocs are of the plains style. Turn inside-out to cut the stitching & re-sew in the same configuration - inside-out. It is hard to turn it if it is of the hard sole variety.

Good luck on the wedding. We're helping with one at the end of May ourselves. It's a friend's and thankfully we'll have no house guests staying with us. No way I could prepare with only a few days after Unity Pow-Wow.

You wouldn't happen to know where I should look for those rubber sole plates would you?
