I really liked this product. It made creating the shoes so much easier! Especially the chipboard forms. Those are so hard to cut correctly. The foam pieces are okay. They are a little thin so I had some trouble using those on my first pair, but once I got the hang of it, it worked pretty good.
I Imade ten pair of sneakers using Miche Designs sneakers and the QT Retro designs sneaker pattern. Loved the boxboard soles...more rigid than the cracker/cereal boxes I've been using.
These forms are a perfect fit for the Wellie Wishers doll feet. They are the stability needed and make shoe construction a lot easier. I would recommend this product to anyone thinking of making doll shoes.
I have bought precut shoe soles from Pixie Faire because I am no use with a craft knife. These soles have perfectly cut edges, and my fingers are now only at risk from the glue gun, which is a vast improvement!
These are advertised as being for 13" to 14.5" dolls, so I bought them for my 13" Effner Little Darlings. The width is fine, but they are 1/4" longer than the commercially made shoes for that doll, which, I will admit, are very close to the toe. Fortunately, they are thin enough that I think they can be trimmed down in front pretty easily with a craft knife, so I expect to be able to make shoes for my LDs. I would love to have a set of shoe soles that actually fit the Little Darlings. I would love to have the hard vinyl soles that the commercial shoes use, which I've yet to find anywhere. I would also love to have a source for the knit-backed faux leather that the commercial shoes use. However, these will do in the meantime.
