Baha Cat

Dolls and Friends was closing and there was this Pipos Baha Cat on 65% discount, so I got one a bit ahead of the schedule.

I wanted to take pictures of the doll outside and as it is winter now, she needed shoes for that. The doll's feet are fairly small, which limits the types of shoes I can make for her. However, boots with laces are always a safe option, so I started with those.

The picture below shows the inner soles (thick white leather) and the upper parts (brown leather). There are only three pairs of holes for the laces as the eyelets were a bit large.

The next stage was gluing the upper parts in place.

The leather was fairly thick, so I had to glue filler parts on the soles to make sure they would be even after gluing the outer soles in place.

The finished shoes look like this. The picture was cropped from one of the outdoor photos of the doll.

This picture shows the outer soles, which are also made of leather.
