Thanks SWB. If the sides of the mukluks had flaps on them it would keep the snow and sticks out better. You can also make a larger pair of moccasins for really cold weather and wear two pairs. The moccasin liners are still used today, I used to make mine out of blanket material, but now in winter I wear long woolen 18th century style stockings.
Regards, Le Loup.

Hi Le Loup, Dallin here from Ultimatebushcraft.com I saw that you stopped by the site a few weeks back and made some comments. I appreciated the info. Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I love the site and this is a great pattern. I need to try it out.
