Freebie Friday, (December 12, 2014), Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (December 12, 2014) we'll have one of the following four patterns available for free. Help us decide by voting in this poll, then come back to Pixie Faire on Friday to download the winning pattern for free. This week we are featuring the amazing work of Meg Paul, world renowned doll shoe maker, and creator of Miche Designs.

More About Miche Designs: Artist Meg Paul is the World's leading 18 inch shoe designer. She lives with her husband Keith, two young boys, and their cat Lucy. She started collecting American Girl dolls when she was eleven after receiving her first doll as a gift from her Grandma. Meg taught herself to sew using Liberty Jane patterns and has always loved to work in miniature. She is passionate about designing beautiful shoe patterns for doll enthusiasts. 

Here is more information about each pattern: 

High-Top Shoes For 18 Inch Dolls: High-tops are quite possibly the most fashionable sneakers ever created!  Now your doll can own a pair of her very own with this fabulous PDF pattern from Miche Designs.  This pattern even comes with a sheet of iron on logos to complete the look of the shoe.   She will be the envy of all the dolls around with these ultra trendy shoes!

Lace Up Boots For 18 Inch Dolls: 18 inch doll shoe PDF pattern from Miche Designs - Lace-up Boots. These boots are perfect for Fall and can be paired with skinny jeans or a cute skirt! This is a craft pattern that requires a small amount of sewing with a sewing machine.

These boots are perfect for Fall and will look great with leggings or skinny jeans! The shoe pattern is designed to use woven fabrics like canvas, twill, tweed, corduroy, ect.

Canvas Slip On For 18 Inch Dolls: 18 inch doll shoe PDF pattern from Miche Designs - Canvas Slip-ons similar to those cute Vans everyone is wearing. Add some sparkle to your dolls day! This is an intermediate level pattern because of the assembly, the sewing skills required are basic.

Can someone please explain to me how this works. If you vote on Friday what time of day do we come back to see what is free? I’ve came on the last couple fridays but still don’t understand where to get the pattern from. I didn’t vote because I didn’t know the pic of the patterns was below and didn’t know what each item looked like. I’m buying patterns, but have not made anything yet. Thank you.

I love all the patterns, but voted for the slouch boots. This will be my first endeavor on making shoes. Thank you for all the free patterns. I get so excited on Friday’s waiting for the new patterns. Sewing helps me relax from a stressful job and life’s up’s and down’s. Merry Christmas to everyone.

The slouch boots was the FIRST pattern I bought from Pixie, so I vote for the Lace-up Boots. That pattern can be shortened to make the high top sneakers, if using different fabric. But ALL of Miche Design shoes are winners. I have several now. Thank you for Fridays, they make my week !

They are all so cute that it’s hard to choose, but I decided on the high top shoe. They look like the black high top tennis shoes I wore for PE many years ago. Thanks for all the wonderful patterns you give us.

Oooo! it has to be the slouch boots, as I can see the fabric in my box just trying to get out already! I love the comment posted about “her granddoll” it is so appropriate, as my little granddaughter considers her doll as a sister! Cinnamon and Meg, can you confirm if these patterns will fit the Canadian Maplea dolls. Their feet measure 3 inches long! Blessings to you both for your kind generousity. I have finally done most of my reviews on garments sewed over the past 2 months and can hardly wait for Christms Eve to see the expressions. It is quite the wardrobe and all have turned out just beautifully. I have never purchased shoes yet, because I am not sure that they will fit, so thanks for advising me.

i already have the slouch boots and the canvas slip ons. The shoes are delightful. I made the boots but have not glued them together yet but they look to be winners also. Love the patterns but looks like I won’t be getting the freebie this week because the slouch boot appears to be in the lead lol.

Happy camper here no matter which pattern wins — may vote for slouch boots due to versatility? I have Meg’s Botas, but not made them yet, so fabulous to have a second shoe/boot pattern, as they’re badly needed in sooo many colors/styles! THANKS again for all you do and to Meg for offering a freebie for this upcoming exciting Friday!!! ;)

I voted on the slouch boots because it’s winter and the girls really seem to love boots. The sole looks so different from anything I tried so far.
And I am amazed at your generosity in providing free patterns. I just keep seeing more things that I like on your website.

I have coveted the shoe patterns on PixieFaire ever since I first discovered them. All of these patterns are ones I have wanted so it is truly difficult to chose just one pattern.
Finally I am picking the Slouch boots just because they could be the most versatile depending on what fabric is used, dressy or casual.
Thanks for making this week SO hard to pick just one!

I want to quit work and play all day with these cute patterns. My 2 Grand daughters got AG and Bitty Baby for Christmas. So I have been sewing up a storm and loving it. Grandpa is going to build them each a clothes rack and using 2 old doll beds I had is refurbishing them into very cool beds for there dolls. Can’t wait to see their faces and hear the screams of joy and best of all the hugs and kisses. Thanks for all you do!

I chose ankle slouch boots as they appeared easiest to me. I’ve never created footwear before and thought these might be a good pattern to start my footwear career. The granddolls will adore slouch boots to coordinate with their Pixie Faire outfits. Thank you Cinnamon and Pixie Faire and Meg.
