This six-part tutorial was created by Anne of the Communities of the Voyageur Metis in Canada. She put this tutorial together in hopes that beginners would not be scared to try their hand at beading moccasin tops. These beautiful moccasin tops or “vamps” were created for the “Walking With Our Sisters” art installation which toured throughout Canada.

Hi, your descriptions and instructions are very nicely done! Thank you for all your work on beading!

I caught the “Yikes someone used my fabric scissors on paper, now they don’t cut!” Try cutting several layers of tin foil with them, that will usually sharpen the scissors back up again.
