Toni doll shoe makeover

Just like Cissy, my Toni had these plastic shoes that were kinda blah.
So I did another shoe makeover!

 The first pair are white.
I made a paper pattern just like with Cissy's shoes.
Using my pattern I cut out the felt and glued it down.

 Then hot-glued the strap in place - VOILA!

 Much better.

The second pair is red. 
Luckily I had some red felt scraps!

Black strap.

 Both finished.

I really like the red and black together! 

 Here are both pair together.
Just as I was finishing the shoes my Mom called 
so I made a couple hats while we talked.

This pink and ivory.


This red and black.

Very pretty Toni!

You must have been a milliner in a previous life. My mother-in-law would have swooned over these hats!

Thank you Fawn. I think it comes from poring over vintage images and watching all those 40s and 50s movies with my grandmother. I read a book recently and a gentleman in the story said "It is wonderful how a whisp of lace and a couple feathers can be so dear." Haha
