The sun is out and your 13-14” doll will be ready to greet her friends wearing these fun slip on shoes. There are so many options of packaged trims to choose from when making shoes from this NO-SEW pattern; cotton lace, embroidered trim, or crocheted trim will all work great.

These little shoes are just too cute. I purchased the pre-cut shoe soles, and in my opinion, this is why they came together fairly quickly. I chose a crocheted ribbon and a woven lace ribbon to make my shoes. The crochet has a lot more give than the woven fabric so the crocheted shoe is much looser than the other. It is a bit of work to get the woven shoe onto my Heart 4 Hearts doll's feet.The attached tab on the back of the shoe comes in handy for pulling on the shoe. So If I use another tight weave ribbon again, I may cut the pattern pieces at least 1/8th of an inch larger for more ease of fit on the doll's foot. I'm very impressed with the designers imaginations to make such detailed pattern to scale for dolls. I will definitely be making more of these shoes.
Easy pattern to follow. I made these for my H4H doll out of a cream-coloured eyelet trim and lined them with the same flowered fabric I made a top out of. I am quite pleased with how they turned out.
