Plaster doll-socks and shoes


I have sought to the deepest parts of me to decide what to do with my plaster doll, I finally settled on a thought.....shabby, bag lady, art doll. But what is that? Well, I thought the best thing to do was to just start. A downsized version of Diane Keaton in "Annie" or a image of the unknown "Aunt". You know, the one that pinches cheeks and wears to bright red of lipstick!? I decided the latter will be the target. And baggy knee-hi stockings came to my mind.


What would be the right shoes for her? Something not to fancy but something not to plain. I don't think the idea of a slipper type shoe is working.....not in leather at least.



They aren't to bad when viewed from the side AND they will have a closure at the top of the shoe.....I guess the problem is....I made her foot with a hi-heel.
That's it! Tomorrow we will work on felt Mary Jane pumps. HA! C&G Design

Mary Janes should be a good shoe for dollie...

I agree with Skeeter...Mary Janes would be great. Speaking of Mary's...have you ever made a Mary Poppins doll? How cool and creative this all is. How long does it usually take you to make a doll? What else do you make?

Hi Dawn...Got much mud? We just laid down more planks today. Without them we would be sucked down out of sight. You amaze me. I wouldn't know where to begin with making doll shoes. Can't wait to see them! Hugs, Kathleen
