I had to keep referring to the pictures as I went through my instructions. It was a little confusing at times, trying to line up the straps in the correct position. Once finished, they look good.
The instruction were easy to follow, I would stress to test gauge. I found I had to do a tuck in the strap to make the sandal fit better. It is a great pattern. Thanks
These sandals are easy to make and look adorable on the dolls. I've made 3 pair so far and have a few more planned.
I've made over a dozen pair of these and more to come. I sewed the first few and was not happy with the sloppy look, so I switched to double sided tape. Wow, what a difference - much faster and neater looking. I have a large stash of ribbon, so these are easy to match-up with fabric.
I love the patterns! Easy to read and understand. Have not made the shoes. Stuck on what craft foam to get.
