I used a stiff pellon fusible instead of cardboard and hand stitched a satin cloth sole to the bottom so that the ballet slippers would be washable. They were ballet slippers to go with leotards and tutus for hospitalized kids with compromised immune systems and had to be washed prior to gifting. I'm sure I'll use the pattern will be used in many ways.
I was just looking at this and saw that the shoes are for 13-14 inch dolls....I was wanting for 18" dolls.....will these fit the 18" or do I need another pattern for that?
