Slip-on Shoes - Doll
Little slip-on shoes are the perfect finishing touch for any doll's wardrobe. Made from wool felt, they are quick and fun to make. Add embroidery or decorative details to personalise them.
Slip-on shoes can be sewn entirely on a sewing machine, but make a satisfying little hand sewing project too.
You will receive a clear, detailed tutorial including step-by-step photos.
The Slip-on Shoes are available separately or as part of the value-priced Doll Clothes Bundle.
