Cutting Machine Basics: Leather, Faux Suede, Vinyl Coated Trims
Make room in your doll’s closet for a new pair of shoes… or maybe several pairs! Have you ever thought about making doll shoes? Let a cutting machine do the hard part and all you’ll have to do is glue them together!
Follow along this week as Donna shares about using a Cricut Maker machine to cut thicker materials like faux suede, genuine leather, and vinyl coated trim. Looking for the supplies shown in the video? You can fine them at the Cricut website: https://shrsl.com/3ix97
The SVG cutting files for this week are from the Braided Sandals Pattern by Genniewren Designs. If you don’t already have a copy of this pattern, you can check it out HERE: https://www.pixiefaire.com/products/braided-sandals-18-doll-shoes – you’ll probably want to have it on hand for the step by step assembly instructions for your shoes. This pattern is designed to be compatible with the pre-cut shoe soles in the Pixie Packs https://www.pixiefaire.com/collections/pixie-packs-pre-cut-shoe-soles , so that is a great option to use if you aren’t ready to invest in a cutting machine, but don’t want to take the time to cut the cardboard and foam for the soles.
Have fun giving these sandals a try, whether you cut them with a machine or by hand!
