Sofie's T-Strap Shoe 18" Doll Shoes

2   |  

The T-strap shoe is among one of the most expanded on shoe styles. The size, shape and even materials of the T-strap features are varied but the basic shape remains intact. Sofie’s T-Strap shoe pattern is basic but allows the crafter to alter the pieces for different design choices. One of the alternate design choices shown in the photo is an original from the ’50s. It is a double strap of braided leather. This variation is included in this PDF pattern as a DIY version.

The supply section of this pattern lists the items needed to make one pair of shoes and instructions are included for a DIY sole made with an easily obtained embossed vinyl or other similar material.

Sofie’s t strap shoe.

I love this pattern, I’m making this shoe in a thin leather with a thicker leather sole. I have to attach the buckle and the sole and I be done. Love the way it looks, so professional looking. Thank you

sofies t-strap shoes

This is such an easy cute shoe. i opted to not put the middle strap on. The shoes still stay on snugly. Excellent fit for American girl dolls!
