A simpler way is to put on an old sock, wrap your foot in parcel tape making sure you stand up periodically so you don't compress your foot too much, then use permanent pen to mark on the outline, seam lines etc. Cut yourself out carefully and tidy up the outlines adding a seam allowance where relevant and you should have a pattern for a basic turn shoe that fits you exactly. This only works really well on the all one piece of leather versions, but can give a useful starting point for scaling up of down more complex multi piece patterns as well.

I've just made a pair using sally's idea. It cost less than £20 and a few hours of my time. The dificult bit was turning them the right way out.

After making them put them in a bucket of hot water for an hour and use a broom handle inside the shoe to push the seams out. Stuff with paper and leave to air dry, cover in hide food and later a wax based sealer to keep the water out.

You just need to make your foot a pattern for the shoes. This could fit it very well. Put some 5 to 10 centimeters allowance depending on the part of curves.

If the broomhandle trick fails I have been known to chew the shoe and hit it with a hammer until the b**ger finally does what I want it to! ( I do, really! It amuses my family no end watching me trying to make turn shoes.) If the leather is really stiff and uncomfortable applying neats foot oil will soften it and help keep the leather supple and waterproof.
