Imagine a wedding, a prom, or a pageant with a beautiful girl in a beautiful dress as the center of attention. That was the inspiration for these darling ankle-strap shoes. Made of satin, taffeta, or similar fabrics, and finished with a sparkly buckle or hook and loop closure hidden by a ribbon bow, these shoes are a dressy option for your 18” doll.
Pair them up with the FROG Princess Fashions Beautiful Butterfly dress
or any fancy party dress and your doll will look adorably fancy!
This machine embroidery design is created in one piece the hoop with some hand assembly required after stitching. This easy design works equally well with vinyl as it does with fabric, so you can make several pairs in your choice of material, to match all your doll’s fancy attire.
These shoes are designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl® and are designed to work with the Pixie Packs pre-cut soles, Shape 1 (or Shape 4) to save you time and trouble in construction.
With just a few simple materials you can create one or several pairs, and the hard work is done for you in the hoop! Requires a home embroidery machine and a 6x10 hoop or larger.
Design Hoops and Sizes:
The pair design measures "5.101 x 8.741" and fits a 6 x 10 hoop; a single shoe upper design measures "3.016 x 7.1."
