Botas
« on: August 11, 2011, 11:58:43 AM »
Did not want to hi-jack the Cherokee thread.  I made my own Botas, thanks to Chuck Burrows for posting the pattern and some great pics.   I have always liked the look and they go a long way to hide my inexpensive boots.     I picked up some leather from our local Tandy's that was on sale, dug through the pile till I found two pieces that had no holes that would show when wrapped.    All told the whole set up cost me ~$45, about half of it in brass

It has three on the side and then a tie at the top.  Doesn't show well, but I have some bone beads and brass cones on the ends of the ties.   I jingle lots when I walk.

Great looking botas!
The first step of becoming a good shooter is knowing which end the bullet comes out of and being on the other end.

Hi All,

Just to mention, for us scaredy-cats afraid to venture out, the Possibles Shop carries a pattern for several items, on of them being a pair of 'botas (or breed leggings' as they were called up north) ...it is part of group called FRONTIERSMAN LEATHER ACCOUTREMENTS and sells for less than $8.00 ... I have not begun making them 'cause I have a set a leathermaker has promised to make for me for over two years ... but I do have that plan when I finally give up ... *S

http://possibleshop.com/pattern-acc-ev.html   (Scroll to the 3rd from the bottom of the page).
My moniker is my great grandfather's name. He served with the 2nd Florida Mounted Regiment in the Civil War. Afterward, he came home, packed his wife into a wagon, and was one of the first NorteAmericanos on the Frio River southwest of San Antonio ..... Kinda where present day Dilley is ...
