Felt boots

The second Doll Shoe Projects book will be about making felt boots. I have the first draft ready, that is, structure done, all photos done, descriptions written, but still needs editing. As I started my studies on Thursday, I will probably need to leave this for the weekends, so it's going to take some time to get this finalized.

The idea with the book is that it starts with the simplest possible structure and then goes into ones that require more work, followed by ideas for decorating the boots, ways to fix your project when things go wrong, how to deal with dolls that have molded shoes that cannot be removed, and how to make fake heels when your doll has flat feet.

As with the first book, the materials and tools are easy to find and cheap. Also, you only need basic hand sewing skills, nothing fancy, so anybody should be able to make boots with these instructions. The designs are also safe for children, if you don't use any small decorations.
