To begin, we'll discuss tools and supplies for both types of footgear, including exploring options for different materials that make good shoes.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to create a shoe pattern to fit your unique doll. This can be used over and over again to create many pairs of shoes! Afterward, learn tips for tracing your reusable patterns to cut out the pieces.
No sewing required! Use your glue gun to put your sandals together for a fast and easy footwear project.
Explore options for finishing trims. Can you believe it? The sandals are already done!
Now for something cozier! Learn a simple method of fitting any doll for a boot to create your own reusable pattern, then get tips for cutting out that tricky fuzzy material.
