Make Indian Moccasins

Directions

Copy the pattern onto a large piece of brown construction paper or craft paper. Make sure you draw it large enough for your foot. Follow the cut and fold directions. Use a hole punch to punch out the circles and use yarn or string to lace the moccasins together.

Decorate your moccasins with crayons, paint, buttons, beads, fabric (glued on), even cotton balls. Let your imagination run wild!

The mission at Waiilatpu had a sawmill supplying it with needed cut lumber. It was located in the Mill Creek drainage. Lumber was needed for the split rail fences and finishing the houses built at the mission.
