I"ve seen tutorials on line where you make the base of the shoe the heel per-say like you want out of clay bake it and then use another material to make the rest of the shoe for it to stay on e.g. ribbon.

Pls Share Pix when your done I'd love to see what you Ghouls Make!
Making your own shoes would give you more outfit variety and make you oc more yours. There really need to be more outfits sold that dont have dolls already wearing them. Like barbie has clothes that are sold by themselves.

 

I'm on a boot, shoe, and wig-making "kick" right now.   For the shoes and boots, I've been playing with patterns I found in  a couple of my old doll books  -  Making Costume Dolls by Hean Greenhowe (1972) and The Doll Book by Estelle Ansley Worrell (1966) 

 

The Greenhowe book patterns for the men dolls come pretty close (the sole is just a bit too short).  In a stretch fabric they'd probably fit.  By accident, I found that when I scanned and copied the patterns, and printed them as pictures rather than documents, by chance the pattern was enlarged just enough to fit the MH dolls.

 

I'm starting with these patterns.  I'll eventually try the women's patterns too, but I'll have to experiment with enlarging them to fit.   They're very simple patterns, so I probably can wing it, but if not, I can always experiment with my printer's enlarge function.

 

So far, I've only cut paper towel pattern pieces and fit them to the doll.   Next I'll experiment with felt and stretch vinyls.
