DIY "Baby" Moccasins/ Barefoot Shoes VIDEO + PDF Tutorials + Patterns
Learn how to make custom-fitted baby leather moccasins by hand with Lougaya.
Over the course of 2 hours of teachings in which she demonstrates how to make a pair from beginning to end, she clearly and precisely explains how to make moccasins at home with very few and simple tools.
The great difference with most other moccasins and patterns that you can find on the market is that ours are made to be adjusted exactly to the morphology of each person.
Baby patterns cover from 6 month old to 2-3 years old in size. As babies feet can have very different proportions, being able to custom-make them is quite interesting!
Baby moccs is a great project to start with as it is quickly done and requires little leather. It can even be made with recycled leather or off-cuts.
We are convinced that even people without prior experience in leather work or sewing can complete this project quite easily.
When purchasing our tutorials, you will gain access to our online platform where you will be able to watch and replay the videos as many times as you like.
You will also receive an email with the printable patterns and PDF tutorial.
(We have to process your order by hand, please allow up to 24 hours.)
The video tutorial helps to understand the right gesture, whereas the PDF tutorial highlights important details in large images and written explanations. Even after your first pair, it is a useful document to remember how to make them without having to watch all the videos again.
With practice, a pair can be made in only 2 to 3 hours but it would usually take about 1 day on the first trial.
Patterns should be printed in A4 or US letter. If you are not able to print the patterns at home, please send us a request.
The tutorials also cover the topics of choosing leather and tools and making soles.
-What are Moccasins?
They are soft-soled shoes or barefoot-shoes. Made of 100% leather, they act and feel just like a second-skin.
They will well protect the feet from sharp objects, dirt, ect; while at the same time allowing to feel the ground’s texture.
They are suitable to where indoors and outdoors although they will need to be re-soled once in a while for durability.
Children usually love them as they allow the child to have a better balance and agility than with rigid shoes. I advise you to make them quite large so that they are easier to put on and also in order to prevent putting any constraint on the soft and growing feet of the little ones. Adding a leather lace around the ankle will safely keep them on and permit size adjustments as the feet grow and/or for socks.
-What is special about the Baby Moccs Tutorial ?
We will start with the “Moon” moccasins technique and I will show you how to adapt the pattern to make it into a “Leaf” style. The LEAF moccasin is a variation of the MOON moccasin. Instead of having only one piece of leather, it is done in two pieces which allows using smaller pieces of leather and 2 colors. Making baby moccasins is a good project to make use of the off-cuts of leather you could have. For the rest, we will use the exact same principle than in others of my patterns, with means standard templates for the front part of the shoe that we combine with a personalized fitting for the heel. This is how you will be able to fit (almost) everyone with patterns based on the width of the feet.

For the made-to-order custom-fitted Earthing Moccasins:
Since each person have different feet, we will ask you for a few measurements to make sure Lougaya makes them to fit as close as possible to your feet so that they can truly become your second skin. Within the first week of wearing them, the leather will also stretch a little to perfect the fitting.
Lougaya has a good rate of good-fittings (8-9/10) yet there is also a risk that the fitting can go wrong, in such case, I will treat each case individually (including refund or sending another pair).
If you gave us the wrong measurements, no refund possible...
