You can crochet an adorable pair of espadrilles with this PDF pattern from Sweet Pea Fashions! The top of this shoe is crocheted in two simple pieces connected by an elastic strap to hold the shoe firmly on the doll’s foot. The vamp is strappy and crocheted in a semicircular shape. The heel cup is a simple trapezoidal shape made of single crochet stitches. The completed shoe is sewn to a prepared insole, and glued to the outer sole. The top can easily be embellished with beads or buttons.

These were very easy to do and came out so adorable! My only problem is that I didn't pay attention when i was putting them together and my doll now has two left feet...well two left shoes anyway! Guess I'll have to make another set with two right ones! Lesson learned!!
These shoes are just too cute! The directions are well written and easy to follow. They were fun to make!
