Probably, not only masters, but also mums,engaged in sewing business together with their daughters, more than once plotting to shoe their dolls. This is not surprising, because shoes are considered a female weakness. Why not pamper your little daughter by making a few new pairs of shoes for her favorite doll, tk. very often they are always barefoot. This article will partially help to solve this problem with the help of a lesson on sewing shoes for the Snowball doll. For this work we need a certain set of tools:
- decorative fabric (a piece of felt fits perfectly);
- A small piece of plastic that will serve as the base of the sole;
- thread in the tone of the felt;
- paper for patterning, scissors, pencil and other tools that can be useful in work;
- do not forget to be patient.
First you need to build a pattern of our shoes. It consists of four parts:
The first step is to transfer our pattern tomaterial and carefully cut out the contour. With allowances, you better determine yourself. If you know the exact size of the shoe, then they can not be left. You can compare the size of the foot of your doll with the size of the future shoe. Sew a tongue to the spout of the shoe, usingliked decorative seam. In work, it is best to use a denim thread, because They look more impressive and voluminous due to their density. Pursue the upper nasal part of the shoes,as shown in the photo. Next, you should plan the middle of the front parts and the sole of the shoes at all four points. Pull out the seamed stitch so that it occupies the smaller part of the sole. Connect the midpoints of the sole and nose. Sew by hand the front of the boot with itsoutsole as you see in the picture. Start from the lateral points and go to the center of the shoe. Then the same thing needs to be done with the back of the shoes. Select the thread on your own. Seams can be made both in contrast and in tone of the material. If you use a typewriter in your work, then you should flash it a second time, but you need to do this with a machine or overlock, the seam is a zigzag. To keep the doll steady on its feet,make insoles for our shoes. To do this, cut two blanks from the plastic along the outline of the cut out sole. They will be our insoles. Insert them inside the shoes and put them on the foot. As you can see, the tongue is not very beautiful. To fix this, you can give it a rounded shape, cut out to the desired shape and height. In the picture everything is perfectly visible. Our shoes are ready for Snowball. It remains only to make lace and decorate shoes with all sorts of decorative elements. For lacing, it is also better to use denim yarn, because they will be much stronger than ordinary ones.
