Oseberg Boot Pattern
This is the pattern I use to make my Viking boots, based loosely on a find from Oseberg, Norway.
This is only the pattern, no instructions: for visual instructions, check out the two videos included under the photos!
Make sure you print each page at its original or 100% size. The red borders should be within the printing bounds of a typical desktop printer, where you then cut and assemble the pieces together.
After printing, verify the size by placing your foot on the paper, and seeing if the back of your heel and your toe match with the lines on the sole.
Please contact me know if you have any questions! I do not provide refunds, but I'm happy to help you in any way I can.
- 10-11oz veg tan leather for the soles (I use Oakleaf veg tan leather from tandyleather.com)
- 3oz soft leather for the upper (I use Kodiak Oily Side from tandyleather.com)
- X-Acto Knife
- French Bevel/Extra wide edge bevel
- Scratch awl
- Curved awl/In-seaming awl (I suggest Sorrell Notions and Findings Carbone 2 7/8")
- Blunt needles (I suggest harness needles)
You can watch the videos on YouTube as well, I have many other crafting videos!
