Barbie Shoes






I made the entire outfit including the jewelry and the Ultrasuede purse but most importantly the shoes! This Barbie was gifted to me and she has the biggest, flattest feet ever. I have over a hundred pairs of Barbie shoes and not one single pair fit her. I think she must be a WNBA Barbie. She has a weird waist and has incredible movement. She has articulated knees and elbows. I had to make her shoes. Using recycled cardboard along with 1/8" ribbon and beads I made these "Toms-like" sandals. I love them. The only drawback is that because her feet are so flat the sandals didn't want to stay on so I added a small amount of double stick tape to inside. Perfecto!
