Hi Laura,

I believe we used Pellon’s Peltex Ultra-Firm Sew-In stabilizer for our prototypes. ( or

Similar sew-in stabilizers would also work. If you’d prefer to iron in a fusible stabilizer, I would recommend removing the seam allowance on the heel stabilizer pattern.

For shoes made from an already stiff material, such as denim or canvas, it’s possible that a heel stabilizer cut from the same material as the rest of the shoe could provide sufficient stability.

Thank you for letting us know about the broken links!
