the instructions were easy to read - i did not have any problems making the shoes. Just need to practice so they can come out perfect.
Great! The instructions are precise; no guessing about what to do next. It takes a bit of practice to produce a pair that would be suitable to sell, but I use them just to stage my products, so very happy with my purchase. I've made several pair. The more you sew,the better they look.
Pixie Sweets Slip-Ons are as cute as can be, but boy, were they hard to put together. They require more skills--top stitching, eyelet inserting, and the dreaded hot gluing--than most patterns. And on a tiny "garment" to boot. It's understandable that they are considered intermediate. I might classify them advanced. If I make another pair, I will make some changes in my technique.
I had done a couple of other shoes first, so I had a chance to get more familiar with the process. This pattern was fun and not too difficult. All I need is to find either the right size rivets or crimping tool, I ‘m just not sure which. Overall it is really cute
I am very pleased with my patterns. I just recently picked up sewing again. I haven’t used a sewing machine since I was 16 and that was 3 decades ago. But with the patterns I buy at Pixie Faire (and with the help of Google, YouTube), I am sewing again.
