After a few failed attempts, I have come up with my first fantastic (well I think so anyways) looking mukluk. I just need to cut ankle ties for it tomorrow and finish the other one. This one is a size 10 mens.
Since I didn't dare cut another chunk out of my smoked hide, I made these out of a polished cow hide. I have a rubber waffle sole that I am going to try gluing to the bottom so that they can be worn outdoors. When I make a pair out of the smoked elk, I won't have to add that to that.
Now that I have figured out one size, next comes the fun part of figuring out how to make other sizes!
