I loved making this pattern. The only problem I encountered was the true AG doll has thicker ankles than the generic 18" doll I was using as a model, so had to redo the ankle straps for my granddaughters dolls.
My favorite shoe so far! Great directions and pictures. Easy to make and looks great.
These were the first shoes I have made, and I was very successful with this wonderful pattern and instructions. I did have trouble using an exacto knife, but that was also a first for me. I ended up just using my scissors. On the small slits that needed to be cut, I just folded in the center of where the slit needed to be and cut with my scissors. No need to go to the expense of purchasing the knife if you don't have one. I couldn't find trim for the soles that was the correct width, so I made my own by braiding 3 strands of twine together. Worked perfectly. Will definitely make these shoes again and am looking forward to making other Miche Design shoes.
love them can't wait to make them thank you for the great patterns
I just finished these. Found that I needed to re-cut the top straps slightly longer (5" instead of 4 1/2") and then fit them to the doll in the final step after the shoes were together. Initially, I used the super thin velcro and it wouldn't hold the top strap together. Ended up using the slightly heavier velcro from Farmcookies. I also used studs...the kind with prongs on the tongue, as glue would not hold anything on the slick side of the vinyl. Made two pair and both came out very well. Love these and starting on the third pair now!
