If you ever wanted to try your hand at making shoes for your Journey Girls® doll, this is the pattern for you. It's a great beginner pattern by Love U Bunches. Minimal sewing, a little bit of glue, really cute shoes! It's also a great way to use up scraps from your stash. It only takes a little bit of fabric to make an awesome pair of shoes. And NO hot glue!
You can make shoes to match every outfit! Your doll is going to need a bigger closet!
