-Main fabric: 8" x 4" light weight tightly woven fashion fabric. Fabric choice for main fabric: Pick a light weight tightly woven fabric such as cotton lawn, challis, silk dupioni, light weight cotton. Standard medium weight quilting fabric may be a little heavy for such a tiny doll.

-Fabric for shoe lining: 8" x 4" light to very light weight tightly woven fashion fabric. Fabric choice for lining: Batiste or very light weight cotton. Consider a light color fabric (white or cream). You don't want the lining bleeding onto your doll's foot!

-Matching sewing thread

-Optional: Instead of interfacing, use cardboard and glue
