I came across this great  craft on how to make boots for your 18 inch doll or American Girl doll.   It was submitted to a site by a very talented young girl  name Celine.

What you need:

  • 10X12 piece of faux fur, your choice of color
  • at least 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 leather piece for boot sole
  • sewing scissors
  • thread, color your choice
  • sewing machine (optional)
  • hot glue


  1. Fold fabric along the 12 side side, furry side up.
  2. Pin pattern onto fabric with the back of the boot along the fold.
  3. Cut out the boot fabric.
  4. Sew boot, starting at the star, along seam A until you get to the toe. Sew up B until you get to the notch.
  5. Inside out the boot so the fur is on the inside.
  6. At the top, fold over about one inch of fabric. This is the cuff.
  7. Handstitch the bottom of the cuff to the boot.
  8. Trace your doll’s feet onto paper.
  9. Use that as a pattern to cut out the leather boot soles.
  10. Cut out the leather and use hot glue to apply the leather piece to the bottom of the boot.
