Hi Everyone! Let's talk about shoes! Not just any shoes, but those tiny intricate adorable doll scale shoes! As with most things at this scale, there are challenges to overcome to master the art of making doll shoes. However, I do feel confident that with a bit of practice this will be easy to accomplish. We will use the Liberty Jane shoe patterns for the demos throughout this course, as well as a few other tips, suggestions, and demos from some of the other shoe designers featured on Pixie Faire. The basic shoe construction is the same for most patterns. We will focus on those elements and by the end of this course, you should have the confidence to any type of shoe pattern that you'd like! So let's dive into this topic and learn the art of making doll shoes. I promise this will be a fun month!
In the videos posted below, I share with you an overview of the month-long topic and then a hands-on tutorial for using iron on and hand applied pre-made embroidered designs. I hope this will encourage and inspire you to try something new!
Resource and Supply list:
YouTube Tutorial Videos - The first one I made for the No-Sew Janes shoe pattern, it is demonstrated on the 18" size shoe but the instructions are the same for any of the pattern sizes.
The second one is made by Chris Saunders of Love U Bunches for the Plain Jane Shoe pattern. This is not an LJ brand pattern, but it's one of our best sellers at Pixie Faire. I thought this would be a great resource to many of you if you haven't seen this video yet!
