I used to have a pair of wool felt clogs, and I wore them until the cork soles disappeared!
Make this miniature version for your 18" dolls such as American Girl®. They even slope toward the back like the real ones! Once you've made one, you won't want to stop!
Two sizes are included: a regular size for wearing with bare feet or store-bought socks/stockings, and a slightly larger one for wearing with hand-made socks (using fingering-weight yarn).
Pair them with the Flossie Potter DOLL SOCK TRIO knitting pattern to complete the look! These clogs also go well with the Flossie Potter's Hip Hugger Bell Bottoms for that 70s look.

1/4 yd wool (will need 6" x 12") -OR- 1 standard piece of felt
6" x 12" lining fabric (cotton works well)

I thought there were too many instructions. I had an awkward time trying to hold the doll's foot and keep the shoe in place while trying to lace the bottom. I don't know if I will make another.
This is the best shoe pattern I have used so far. The finished shoes are adorable and very easy to make.
I will definitely be purchasing more of your items in the near future.
These were fun and easy to make! Now my doll has several pair of the clogs I loved to wear as a teen!!
