Summery BJD Shoes

by Lynn Davis

This pattern uses US crochet terms.

Sized to fit dolls with feet measuring 52-55 mm x 20 mm. These shoes will fit both flat and high heel feet, depending on how the outsole is made.

Interlinked crochet stitches are used to make the insole piece and are defined in the pattern.

Directions are included for making a template to cut soling material to finish the shoes.

  • #10 crochet thread, about 27 yards (25m)
  • #7 (1.65mm) crochet hook
  • 4 small beads, optional, for the ends of the shoe ties (3-4mm beads or 6/0 “E” beads)
  • 1 piece of stiff clear plastic, such as from a piece of packaging or food container, to make a template for cutting the sole
  • Fine point permanent marker for writing on the plastic
  • Acetone (nail polish remover) to remove the marker from the plastic
