A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, right? The same goes for boots!
This PDF download includes pattern pieces and step-by-step photo instructions for creating a pair of slip-on short boots for your 18-inch doll. Features include a fabric-covered insole made from chipboard, a foam sole, and an exterior cross-over strap with optional slider detail, which can be created with a ready-made ribbon slider or made from vinyl using the included pattern piece. Thanks to the slip-on design, no fasteners are needed!
To make these boots, you'll need intermediate-level sewing skills, as well as the ability to use a hot glue gun.
• 1/6 yard vinyl or very lightweight, flexible leather
• Hot glue gun & glue sticks
• 6 mm thick foam – 3×3-inch piece
• Chipboard – 3×3-inch piece
• Fabric – 4×5-inch piece
• Narrow trim – approximately 18 inches
• Optional – 2 ready-made ribbon sliders to fit 3/8-inch wide strap
NOTE: You will need access to a doll (or pair of doll legs) to complete the construction process.
