Nimpus I have fallen in love with your shoes and I would love to make my own, but unfortunately the book with the patterns in unavailable in Slovenia and the scans that you shared are expired. I hope its not to much truble to ask for you to post them one more time or send them to me? 

Cheers Luc

I was wondering if there was a possibility of getting a copy of the pattern that you used for these? I would love to try my hand at making them for myself. Thank you

Hi, I'll try to get around to scan the patterns, but their from the Tre Kannor book Skoboken:; www.trekannor.com/pages.asp?Pa… if you can get your hands on that one I'd recommend acquiring it.

Very well done. I am trying to make a pair of turnshoes at the moment and it is doing my head in! ARGHHHH
Having been really frustrated by trying to make my own I really appreciate the workmanship in these. Nice

are these turn shoes? also what thickness of leather did you use. I am experimenting with making shoes, only have one actually made but i think the leather was two thick, had a heck of a time turning them, also the seam is sorta uncomfortable (probably due to the thick leather..)

Thats awesome i saw another pair that was kind of like this but nothing near the color or the ruggedness, man you did a great job :) So now im wondering if you would be able to send me a pattern as well if time permits you! best regards and keep on doing things that are great!

I searched for this book, but... here in Italy is unavailable.
Would you mind if I ask you to send me the pattern for those shoes?
Thanks!

lol i just thought it would be cool if you made those you could seriously make money off those for people who are in SCA or who are renfest fans lol, but just thought you had a price like you made them if people ordered them lol

Nimpsu Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2010  Student Interface Designer
Oh, I think I just misunderstood you. I do make these as commissions as well, but at the moment I'm still studying so I don't have that much time to contribute towards making money with crafts :) But I have more orders coming than I have time to make the stuff so I guess that's positive in a way. My price for that kind of boots/shoes is around 150 euros.

You're welcome. I want to make a couple myself but it's very expensive to buy leather in Norway, so I don't want to make any mistakes. ;) Did you just make them by yourself, or did you take a course?

Nimpsu Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2010  Student Interface Designer
Well, I was on a year-long course named "historical handicrafts", which consisted of leatherwork, metalwork, ceramics, textiles and woodworking, but yeah, we made one pair of boots in the school as well.
