This free sewing pattern will fit a lot of different flat-footed dolls with smallerish feet, like Skipper™, Made-to-Move Barbie™, Tall Barbie™, Liv Dolls from SpinMaster™, and even Momoko Dolls™ (which means it also fits some Blythe™, Pullip™, and Obitsu™ BJD’s). I’m working on a similar pattern to fit my Lammily™ dolls, but I don’t have it perfected yet. Once I do, I’ll let you know.
In the meantime, here’s the pattern and tutorial for making the shoes you see pictured above:
If you’re looking for more of a sneaker pattern, please look back at the pattern I posted on 25 July 2016. If you want a boot pattern, I have a few of those, including one for the little 8-inch dolls like Stacie™, the Breyer™ dolls, and World of Love. Just peruse some of these older postings to find what you want:
And before I go, I wanted to show you this cool image of one of my Liv dolls wearing these same flats. She looks so awesome in this shot!
Coming soon: easy-peasy sewing lessons for the beginner doll sewists. I’ve been getting requests for tutorials that even the brand-new sewists can make, so I’m working on a series of easy-to-sew patterns and tutorials for just that sort of person. These beginner tutorials will be suitable for both children and adults. I plan to begin posting those easy-sew lessons and patterns this fall, so stay tuned for more news about that.
I’ve also got a playlist of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, for those who are new to design and alterations.
If you have any questions about my patterns, instructions, or about sewing for dolls, in general, just submit a question.
Please be aware, however, that I may not be answering emails until mid-August, as I’m on a business trip right now, so if you need answers to your sewing questions right away, you’ll probably want to search elsewhere.
Remember that you need to enlarge my patterns to fit an American-sized sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm), without margins, before printing. Feel free to pin, like, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls in their line, including a new male doll, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
