Makies Ballet Flats (Free Crochet Pattern)

Updated on October 24, 2015

My favorite hobby is to crochet doll clothes. Using what I've learned from reading existing patterns, I create my own designs for Barbie.

As I was checking out items on Etsy, I saw some crocheted shoes for Makies and I thought I would adapt my Barbie Ballet Flats pattern to fit my Makies doll. It provides a cheap alternative to the ones that are on sale at the Makies site since you only need a small amount of crochet thread for each pair. But as of this posting, there are no shoes available for sale at their site, anyway, so you will have to wait a while before you can purchase 3-d printed shoes.

This hub is a free crochet pattern for a pair of Makies Ballet Flats. One of my pet peeves when making baby booties is the way the shoes look the same (no distinct left and right shoe). So for this project, I added some decreases to make two distinct shoes.

The photos used for this hub include Makies Interlocked Crochet Dress and How to Make a Doll Wig.

Make in several colors to match with any outfit. It only uses a small amount of thread, so it is a great stash buster. For those interested in making other doll-sized shoes, please visit Barbie Ballet Flats and Ever After High Ballet Flats.
