Making boots for BJD tutorial

By scargeear
WARNING: FULLSIZE IS HUGE!!!

Please download a PATTERN here: [link]

This tutorial can be used for making human-size boots too, with some changes to the process:
1. No wire in the soles, of course.
2. Leather for all parts should be much thicker than for dolls.
3. Use stiff and strong leather for the outer soles. Make low heels (I recommend not more than 3 cm high) because higher heels require special soles.

Enjoy!
If something is unclear please ask me in comments.

What is “Magic block” for removing stains? I have a doll who has been stained

Try also to google "Melamine sponge", and that's it. It's a block of white foam that is a fine abrasive.

Oh ok, I have heard of those! People use them to remove scuffs on vinyl dolls, I’ve never heard of one removing stains but it’s worth a try

Yes, exactly, and it's also often sold as kitchen cleaning tool.

Your pattern is amazing, thank you for sharing it with us!
I create my first doll and your boots are like his boots. If it was created for him (the doll).. Thank you again, even the 8 cm size is just perfect for the doll's size. :D:D I am sooooo happy now!:D:D:

These were made in 2008.

I still have a feeling that it's a major misunderstanding...
