Cissy Doll Shoe Makeover

I have these 2 pair of shoes to fit my Cissy doll.
Compared to Cissy's beautiful clothes, they're kind of blah.

On eBay I  saw these made by:
They have all different colors and styles.

SO, I decided to try to make some myself.
I cut off the straps on my shoes.

 I laid the shoe on some paper to 
make a pattern.

 Checking the fit.

I cut out some felt with my pattern.

The felt protects Cissy's stockings from snags.
I added a decorative strap and hot-glued it underneath.

White mules.

Black strappy.

Oh, and I also made a couple handbags.

This black envelope bag.

And this pink clutch.

I'm going to try this with my bride doll's shoes since one has a broken strap. This is a much more pleasing solution than my hot glue idea. The purses are adorable.

Fawn you should definitely try this! It was so easy and SUCH an improvement. The white shoes used to have hte back strap but they were broken so I cut them both off. Then I saw this idea and decided I can do this. I am very happy with the results.
