The shoes came out great. The pattern is very clear and easy to follow. I do not crochet often but had no trouble following the directions. It looks like I’ll be making a lot more!
I fell in love with this pattern. I have made a lot of doll shoes, and even written a book on the subject, but using a blanket stitch on fun foam to attach the upper to the sole was brilliant! I highly recommend this pattern to anyone who enjoys crochet for perfectly fitting shoes for a special doll.
LOVE! LOVE! THANK YOU
This pattern is quick and easy to stitch up in an evening. it seems a bit tight on the doll with the large size soles in the pattern. I traced my doll's foot and created my own sole pattern, which fit much better. Very sweet shoes!
