High button shoes







I have been having fun this weekend experimenting on some realistic looking, high button shoes for my doll. I think I am finally happy with the results.
It's amazing how similar to leather, fabric can look and feel after painting it!
The seperate soles were a trick, but with lots of basting & tons of patience, Voila!
