These Boots Were Made For Stitching

Today at the Brisbane Brown Owls meet was a stitching type of day. I jumped at the chance to get started on a project I've had in mind for quite a while... to embroider a pair of boots.


For now, it's just a lone crane, but the plan is for a string of three on each leg.


And with the split-toe in these Japanese boots...


It's lucky that I have a collection of split-toe tabi socks to wear underneath.

Are these really boots??! They are cool! What do they use them for? I thought it was pretty cold and wet in Japan, but maybe I´m wrong. Is it an old type of boot, or a new "invention"? They rock, no matter. And the embroidery fits perfectly.

You realise you are going to set a trend. Embroidered boots - brilliant. And I'm glad you mentioned that they were socks you were wearing in that last shot. I thought you had tattooed your feet!

Are those boots comfy to wear? and do they have a proper sole on them to wear them out? Very groovey if you can!!!
