These shoes (and others using the same pattern) appear in a lot of my photos of dolls. That’s because I really love this pattern! These flat doll shoes are so quick and easy to make! There’s only a little sewing involved, and you hot glue the sole to the shoe when you’re done.
I’ve found this particular shoe pattern fits most Barbies®, Liv Dolls™, Momoko® dolls, and even Skipper® too! It does not fit the flat-footed Barbies® that have a larger-than-average foot. To see if this pattern will work on your fashion doll, cut out the paper pattern and place the pattern over your doll’s foot. You can try taping the pattern on too, just to see how it will fit. This gives you some idea of how much seam allowance you’re working with.
Here’s the free pattern for making the shoes, and above, you’ll find my tutorial showing you how to make them:

If you’re searching for a different pattern, have a look at the Gallery Page. That’s the easiest way to search through all of my patterns to find what you want. Each image on the Gallery Page takes you to links for patterns and tutorials.
Please note: you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) without margins before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects).
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.
I’ve also got a series 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 gather fabric, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and videos without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. It’s always friendly and kind to show your appreciation for my free patterns and tutorials by liking them on Facebook, pinning them on Pinterest (yes, you have my permission), and/or tweeting about them. You’re also welcome to add any of my YouTube channel‘s videos to your playlists. Please visit those links for easy access to my patterns, tutorials, and blog posts.
