What are you most proud of? I actually got them done in time. These were pretty quick. I completed the two pairs from start to finish in 2 hours

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Assembly line is the way to go if you want to make more than one pair and they're so quick and easy why not make several. When I make these again, I'll add some markings to line up the top and bottom pieces.

have you made them in a bigger size? I'd like to make them for a little girl that is going to be one so i would think she would take a 12mth size. Im not sure how i would increase the size. They are really cute and i think they would be a great gift.

I reduced the pdf by 64 % and then printed to make smaller shoes. I changed this in the page setup. I calculated the ratio between the pattern and the size of the shoe that I wanted to make. In this case, I was making shoes for an Our Generation Doll (like American Girl). To do this I printed the pattern, then placed the existing doll shoe on the pattern aligning the heels of the doll shoe and the pattern. I then traced the outline. I measured the traced outline and then the pattern outline. I divided the smaller by the larger and this gave me the percentage ratio. I rounded up. After I printed, i overlayed the reduced pattern over the outline drawing of the doll shoe and it matched. The finished shoes fit perfectly. I made them out of one layer of felt. I'm testing patterns to see how hard they would be for a 5th grader to make. This one is super easy even if you do all the layers as directed. Take it slowly with the sewing and stop with your needle down!
