Hey guys! Today I have a quick pattern for how to make shoes for the Mini Free Spirit. You’ll probably remember this doll from all the fandom dolls I make. Well, these characters needed shoes, so this is what I came up with.
These are so cute and tiny and VERY easy to lose, haha. If the dolls are for playing with, it might be best to avoid the shoes. But since these ones were for display, the shoes were appropriate. (I wonder how many Barbie shoes my sister and I have lost over the years…)
- G hook
- 2 yards of worsted weight yarn
Round 1: Ch 4. Hdc in 2nd chain from hook. Hdc in next chain. 5 dc in last chain. Turn to work across other side of starting chain, hdc in next ch, 2 dc in last ch. Sl st to first sc.
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in back loops only around. Sl st to first sc.
Round 3: Ch 1, sc 2, (sc2tog) 3 times, sc in remaining stitches. Do not join.
Fasten off, leaving long enough tail so that you can sew that gap together neatly. It’s easiest to slide the shoe onto the doll BEFORE you attempt this. Ask me how I know. Then weave in ends and you’re done! Tip: Crochet over the starting tail as you go to save trying to weave in two ends on this tiny shoe.
