This listing is for a complete collection of my doll shoe workshop in PDF format. There are 20+ different shoe patterns included in addition to several variations in design and embellishment ideas. The workshop is 327 pages long with hundreds of full color photos to guide you step by step through the shoe making process. There are 11 lessons total. Each lesson averages 20-30 pages in length. You can print out the full lessons, or just the parts and patterns.

The patterns in this collection are designed to make 28mm shoes for a flat style foot—these fit Lati Yellow Dolls, Blythe, Kish Riley and other similar tiny feet. Instructions for altering the sizes of the patterns are included as well if you’d like to make shoes for a different sized foot!

This workshop was more than a year in the making. Here I have done extensive research and development for you, so you can concentrate on the fun of making tiny shoes for your dolls! I will show you how to customize the look of your shoes, where to find the best supplies and I share all the design patterns you could ever wish for!

Traditional shoe how-to guides only contain a few patterns, and are not very thorough when it comes to HOW to put the shoe together. My workshop not only shows you step by step how to make perfect tiny shoes, it shows you how to make custom adorable chunky soles to go with them! Plus, by the time you have completed all 10 lessons, you will have oodles of patterns and variations. Your dolls will definitely have an enviable shoe collection!

Can I sell the shoes I make?
- Yes! You can make a profit off the shoes you learn to create in this workshop! Heck, if you make and sell just two pairs of shoes, you’ll have made your workshop money back! The only limitation I have on these workshops lies with the patterns themselves—you may not sell or redistribute the workshop text and patterns without my consent.

Is this workshop for me?
- Do you want to learn how to make your own custom tiny shoes? Or can you envision your dolls rolling in pairs and pairs of shoes? Or do you want to make a little extra money for your hobby? If so, Yes, yes and yes! Or maybe you want to save a little money by not buying fancy doll shoes at $20-30 a pair—you can make your own!

How can I know this workshop will be awesome?
- These workshops are 100% developed by me, Jessica Hamilton. I have been teaching art workshops at national and private retreats for the last 6 years—I even taught on an episode of DIY’s” Craft Lab.” I have a bachelor of science in fine art and a master’s in technical writing—I love teaching and I love to research, experiment and write workshops!! Here are some nice things clients have said about my PDF workshops:

“I would like to thank you for an excellent project. There is so much detail, real step by step process and enough info to make a wonderful [project]. I have now read through the whole thing and can't wait to start.”

“The "booklets" are fantastic. Well written and the pictures are a real help and not the typical "fluff" people seem to feel the need to stuff in their directions.”

“Hi Jessica, your instructions are well written and quite easy to follow.. I am happy w my purchase.”

“I just finally finished [printing] the class tutorial. WOW what a ton of work you do on this class. Just wanted you to know how appreciated it is. And I love the fact that my next [project] will be so much better because of it.”

“This workshop has been one of the best I've taken… Jessica is a fantastic teacher and the project is so much fun.”

What are you waiting for? Let’s make shoes! :]
Still not convinced? Would you like to see a sample shoe pattern? This is my free mini tutorial for making simple tiny doll slippers in the same scale as my shoes. (This free slipper tutorial is not one of the 20+ patterns featured in the complete tutorial--it's an extra bonus pattern :].)


I hope this helps! I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the tutorial or its contents so we can make sure it is right for you!

This is the best tutorial I have ever received on any topic. At first I was not sure I should pay this much for a tutorial; but it was worth every penny. Excellent directions, many many illustrations, and lots of excellent tips. This tutorial is nothing less than a labor of love by the author. Her tutorial is far better than any books I have seen or own on the topic of making doll shoes and is the only one I have ever found that adequately addresses tiny doll shoes. Kudos to Jessica! I am very pleased.

I'm really enjoying this shoe tutorial so far. I sew but always have to buy shoes, they didn't seem like something I could make myself. Now I know better! The instructions are very detailed and there are plenty of photos. This tutorial has tips and instructions that I have not seen repeated elsewhere. I also appreciate that sources are listed for all the supplies.
