Plain Jane 18” Doll Shoes

Love this pattern because I can match the shoes with any outfit I make.

Cute Shoes

Love these shoe patterns and so does my Granddaughter! To see the look in her eyes with each new shoe or boot is so great! Each shoe gets easier and easier to make.

Easy and fun!

The Plain Jane 18” doll shoe pattern was easy and fun to make. I plan to adjust the pattern to also make shoes for my A Girl for All Time doll (16”) and some older dolls in my collection.

Plain Jane Shoes

I love this pattern. It is so versatile. I made two pairs for my 18 inch dolls. Then I narrowed the width and made a pair for my skinny 18 in BFC Doll. I really like that you can dress them up or down. I have been looking at this pattern for years. I am so glad I bought this one.

False start to cute shoes

After printing out the wrong size, I found that the pattern would fit my Journey Girl so I decided to go ahead and make the shoes. The instructions are at two levels and I followed the Cobbler 101 instructions. The author has given very clear instructions on how to cut , press and assemble these cute shoes. I am very pleased with the results and will certainly be printing a correct size pattern to make more of these cute little "must have" shoes in a variety of fabrics.
