How To Make Doll Shoes At Home Without Sewing
Making doll shoe is an easy process that can be done by anyone at home and they can be made without the need to stitch. Stitching can be quite complicated if one does not know how to do so and a method that does not need stitching is better. To begin the process, you have to get several items and materials that are usually found easily and at low prices as well. The materials needed are vinyl which is not expensive and is also easy to find but you should not use costume vinyl due to being too flimsy. Leather straps could also be used instead of vinyl as the straps are a bit sturdy perfectly suiting this project.
Trims are also needed and there are different types of the trims including braided, sequin and others that are also suitable. Cereal or cookie cardboards and six millimeter foams will also be needed to make the doll shoes. Glue is also necessary and a glue stick that will help when placing the glue and it is important to use them sparingly so as not to create unwanted residues in the shoes. Rubber cement can also be used in place of normal glue but you need to be cautious using the rubber cement because inhaling it can cause some effects. The materials could be hard to cut or bore into and requires leather punchers, scissors and a hobby knife to cut them easily. Ribbon and poly cord shoelaces can be used.
The first step is to cut all the pattern pieces including cardboard, vinyl, and foam into desired size and width. Then use the leather puncher to punch shoelace holes on the uppers and the hobby knife can help to remove the left cut-outs. Glue the cardboard soles together with the vinyl by applying glue and confirm they are well glued. The fourth step is to glue the front upper firmly onto the cardboard soles and then wrapping around the cardboard soles and flattening through small cuts. After that, stick the upper part onto the back part of the cardboard and repeat the third step.
After this, use hot glue to stick the matching foams to the uppers and apply pressure for some time to ensure no gaps are left. Then take the trims and use glue to stick it onto the foam while ensuring to press so that they stick properly. To close the shoes, you need to resize the trims through cutting and once it is looking great, apply glue onto the endings and press to close. Molding the shoes is easier when a doll leg is used.
