Follow along as Cinnamon kicks of this shoe making series, Sewing The Dorel Boots, with a closer look at the supplies needed.
The pattern we'll be using for this sew-along is the QTπ Pattern Co Dorel Boots for 18-inch Dolls. It includes several varieties and options to customize the boots to create many unique looks! These scaled down boots are inspired by the popular Sorel Boots, designed for cold weather and rugged terrain!
The boot consists of 3 main parts:
~The soles - We recommend pre-cut soles found at Pixie Faire. You'll need both 2mm foam/chipboard and 6mm foam. You can cut your own, but the pre-cuts save time and are perfectly sized!
~ The lower boot - This portion is designed to be made with a vinyl material. We recommend marine vinyl, found at most craft and fabric stores. It's final on one side and polyester fabric backed on the other. It's lightweight and flexible, easy to mold to the shape of the shoe sole.
~ The Upper Boot - This portion can be made in a variety of fabrics. Your an use vinyl, nylon, corduroy, or even quilting cotton! Lightweight fabrics should be interfaced, try fusible fleece for a cozy look and feel!
The additional supplies needed are:
~ Eyelets or D Rings for lacing
~ Cord for lacing
~ Double sided Quilters Tape
~ Non-stick Pressor Foot
~ Hot Glue Gun
