After spending 2 hours hand sewing a pair of desert boots together this afternoon in the 30 degree heat, I gained a stronger appreciation for why the sewing machine was invented.
It’s not that I don’t have one, this was definitely a hand-sewing only task, but god dammit it took a long time.

I’ll post some pics of them when they’re done, and a whole lot of other stuff about shoemaking and Melbourne shoemakers.
