These boots are super cute the written instructions and pictures are clearly written and easy to follow . I did find the inner sole was larger than the sole opening , it was hard to fit in the area. I did trim it down some . The outer sole I did cut abit larger than the pattern , it fit the shoe better . All said and done , I was very happy with the end product Sharon Koethler
The upper part of the boots came together quickly and easily, the pattern is easy to follow and the boots fit well. I did have a bit of a problem glueing the insole to the upper part of the boot, it was very tight. Next time I will be sure to cut the sole a tad smaller. Love the way they look, very cute boots!
Easy to make boot..Perfect fit--Love them!!! Thank-you
These boots were really fun and easy to make. I cut my soles with a die cut but you surely could just cut them from the pattern pieces and still have a awesome pair of boots. Your little one will be able to put these on her doll with no trouble all by herself.
I have made two sets of these ankle boots. I love how the boots just slip on and off easily. The strap that goes across the the ankle allows for many different embellishments. The photos and instructions allow for easy assembly. I was very pleased with how my boots turned out and I will be making them again definitely. Great pattern!
