The sun is out and your 14.5” WellieWishers™ 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. You just need a style that is at least 2 inches wide and has a straight edge along the length of the trim. A variety of lightweight woven cotton fabrics can be used for the shoe lining.
This PDF pattern is designed to fit Wellie Wishers dolls specifically and uses a new sole design and will not fit H4H or Les Cheries.

I found the pattern easy to understand, it was a little tricky to actually make it work. I love the finished product! I must confess, I up-sized the pattern slightly because I did not have a Welli Wisher. I made the adorable shoes for a vintage doll from FisherPrice, “Mandy” from the My Friend series of the 80’s. She loved them!!☺️
These dolls can never have too many shoes. The pattern is simple to follow. The download was user friendly. I live an 1 1/2 hr from anywhere, 3 hr. drive round trip. However, once I am in the big city, there are no patterns for the 14" dolls. Thank you for making these patterns easily at my fingertips.
I'm having a wonderful time making the No-Sew Jane shoes for WellieWishers. The pattern was easy to understand and use, my first PDF. I know my granddaughter will be thrilled with the shoes.
This is a great pattern for beginners like me! The instructions and step-by-step illustrations are very clear and easy to follow along. I did not have access to chipboard and used 3 pieces of cereal box cardboard glued together. Other supplies were easy to find at local hobby and craft stores. The most difficult/messy part was using a hot glue gun, but I'll get better at it! (The tacky glue I had on hand did not work well.) My 10 yr. old granddaughter was very happy with her doll's new shoes. Making these shoes is addictive as they are just so cute and can be put together in just a few hours!
