Here is more information about each pattern: 

Gladiator Sandals: Find out how to make a pair of stylish gladiator sandals with this PDF pattern from Miche Designs. These trendy sandals can be embellished by adding a few jewels.   This is a craft pattern that requires a small amount of sewing with a sewing machine and use of a hot glue gun.

I agree with Rhonda, Meg is an awesome designer. I also have several of her designs. Congratulations on your 75th, tho you don’t look old enough. LOL My vote is for the Gladiator, as it looks like it can be modified to make the Strappy sandles also. As always- Freebie Friday’s are the BEST !!!!!!!! Thank you Pixie Faire & staff. The popularity of 18" trends grows because of your designers and generosity.

75 Patterns is an amazing accomplishment! Congratulations Meg! Your designs are all so beautiful. I’ve only made one pair of shoes so far, so I’m looking forward to trying a second design. I am very appreciative of any design that you decide to offer us. They are all adorable. I voted for the Gladiator pattern because I think they would look super with a.1970’s style maxi skirt and top outfit that I recently made. But truly, i will feel blessed to receive any of your beautiful designs. Thanks so much!

Meg you REALLY are the World’s greatest designer for 18 inch doll shoes. Every single pattern with your name on it is truly a WINNER. I am pleased that you have created 75 patterns; hopefully, there will be double that amount! Whichever pattern is chosen, I will personally be grateful for your creativity, expertise, and generosity. May your life be filled with love.

Your shoes are “sew” cute! Congrats on #75! I’ve had good luck with a couple but they certainly are tricky for me to assemble compared to stitching for clothing. As much as I’ve enjoy them, my ‘fashionista’ daughter really admires shoes with heels, so tips on how to make some shoes closer to pumps would be exciting and appealing to her.

Betty

Hard to decide ~ love them all but I think I will vote for the Chic pattern. Does the ones with the ankle straps use elastic in the back or buckles? Just wondered as I didn’t see a buckle. Congratulations Meg and Miche Designs. Looking forward to your next 75 and maybe with this pattern I will lay aside my fear and make a pair.

Congratulations on your 75th pattern, quite an accomplishment. I have been admiring your patterns but have not be brave enough to attempt making shoes. I hope I will be successful using your pattern. All of the shoes are adorable. I love the Gladiator sandals so my vote is for them. Please keep on designing. I asked Pixie Faire to have a class on making shoes and boots. I have my fingers crossed that I will be able to make some sandals. Thanks for your gift to us.
