@HomesteaderWife That sounds great, I would live in the high top ones. Sadly i don't have a pattern for those, but DH has a pattern for low tops. I can check with him tonight when he gets home from work and figure out a way to sent you a copy if you would like.@Ursuline Chick - It's generally easy to tell in the beginning when I start fleshing so if I am not prepared for a full dehair, I usually trim those off. Otherwise it doesn't much matter and I end throwing in the separate pile for soaking to remove all the hair anyways. Late Fall/early Winter hides seem to also slip more in general here as they put on that other coat. I've still got a pile of tanned leather I keep wanting to make moccasins with - do you have any plans/drawings for making any? I wanted to make tall boot-style ones at some point as I have a bunch of buckskin lace to wrap with.
