Does that special little girl in your life adore her American Girl Dolls? Make a pair of American Girl Doll Flip Flops for their summer wardrobe! These DIY 18 inch doll shoes are so simple to make with this free plastic canvas pattern – even younger girls can help put them together.
Over the years, I had so much fun making American Girl doll crafts for my daughters. I created this plastic canvas pattern for my youngest daughter. She is a teenager now and has long outgrown playing with dolls. I have carefully packed away all her dolls, clothing, and accessories in the hopes that one day she will have a daughter of her own.
I thought I would share the 18 inch doll flip flops pattern, so that other moms, grandmas, and aunts could make them for their special little American Girl Doll fans. Enjoy it while they are small! Believe me, they grow up so fast!
Made from plastic canvas, these adorable DIY 18 inch doll shoes work up quickly. One pair of flip flops takes just 30-45 minutes from start to finish. This would be a good summer project to help teach your daughter to sew, especially if you used the plastic beginner’s needles.
This American Girl doll flip flops pattern only uses one plastic canvas stitch – the continental (or half cross-stitch). It is a great pattern to use up yarn scraps.
