My Doll and Her Heels

Here I am back with my doll. Ha-ha-ha! I found the solution for her heels.


I almost gave up on her and almost sent her to the UFO box. It was one of those pains on my neck when I actually couldn't sleep, or at least I went to the bed with only one thought: what to do to get rid of her heels.

As I told already, the idea to replace the feet didn't work for me. I didn't want to paint the feet either, and the thought to glue the fabric/leather on her legs was like a nightmare for me.

If you do something, do it correctly, true?

I wanted to make real shoes for her that she could take off and back on if needed.

I tried to sand the heels of with a sandpaper. HA-HA-HA! Naive me.

I tried to scroll saw them away - broke a blade! Only that black line appeared on the foot.


I must tell you: DON'T GIVE UP! If you can't think about anything, remember, you have friends with tons of ideas and advises.

My Russian friend Victoria (http://inchscaled.com) offered to try a mini rotary tool. I did and it worked. SO EASY! Одна голова - хорошо, а две лучше! It took me probably about 10 minutes per each foot to get rid off those heels that have been on my way! Vika, thank you very much!


I was very careful trying not to brake the feet. As soon as I saw a little hole that Casey (http://caseymini.blogspot.com) warned me about, I stopped digging it.


Even at her age it is possible to have sexy legs


Now I can make shoes and slippers just for her feet!

Happy Natalia

Looking good! I'm happy that you didn't hit the dreaded hole. Are you going to needlepoint slippers? Can't wait to see what you do.

I love minis. Your work is incredible! Do you think a rotary tool would remove some of the extras on my legs so I could have sexy legs again~lol?

Natalia I admire your persistence with this! When I first saw your post about how to get rid of the heels I hadn't a clue! Thank goodness for those knowledgeable artist friends out there eh? :D

The feet look spectacular - like they were made that way! Good luck with the slippers and shoes.

Hugs,
Jackie

What a clever advice - the feet look as if there had never been heels...

Casey, I am planning to make shoes, boots and of course needlepoint slippers. The size of her feet is 3/4". The slippers that I make are too small for her feet. My concern is that the slippers I'll make just for her feet will look too big for the scale but it is what it is, it's her feet. I am looking forward. It is fun do dress a doll!

Connie, you made me laugh, thank you, :))))

I could have sworn I left a comment yesterday. ;/ Darn IE is just not working right lately, I think? Freezing up, shutting down on me. But anyways, the feet turned out wonderful! I admire your patience and persistence with it. I had no idea how to grind those down and cringed at the thought if it were me I would have probably broken them. You did a FABULOUS job! They look as though they were made that way. :D

Hugs,
Jackie
