Yes! This is the pattern for me ~ I am finally making doll shoes! I love Chris' accompanying video tutorial on YouTube (the link is in the pattern instructions). I watched it before attempting my first pair. Now I review it, starting and pausing as I work my way through each step. Very well-written instructions with lots of photos. So happy!
Je suis pleinement satisfaite de mon expérience avec Pixie ❤ Faire. Passer la commande a été facile car les instructions sont facile à suivre et le produit est conforme à mes attentes.
Excellent. It was super easy and delightfully enjoyable as you can design so many styles with this pattern. I would strongly recommend it to all!!
So far I have only made one pair and quite honestly, they were difficult to make; however, I am hopeful my future pairs of the tiny shoes will improve with more experience. Tips provided by the Love U Bunches designer are great! My husband has promised to make the third hand - cobbler’s foot form - which should help.
