SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 1 yard of fleece or 1/2 yard of contrasting fleece
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors or rotary cutter & mat
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Paper for pattern
  • 1/4" elastic & safety pin

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Trace the bottom of the child’s shoe on paper. This will be the sole of the slipper.
  2. Measure the sole pattern from the center of the toe to the center of the heel, going around the edges. This will be the length of the side slipper pattern. The height of the slipper should be the same as the distance from top to heel. The top of the slipper should be about 1" longer than half the distance from toe to heel. Round off the toe and draw a slant up towards the cuff.
  3. For each pair of slippers, cut out 4 soles and 8 upper pieces. Use contrasting fleece for the lining of the slipper, if desired.
  4. Sew the outer slipper pieces together, right sides together (RST) with 1/4" seams, along the back and front of the slipper. Sew the lining upper pieces together in the same way.
  5. Turn the lining pieces inside out and place outside the slipper with RST. Stitch together around the top edge.
  6. Turn both pieces right side out and push the lining back inside the slipper.
  7. To make the casing for the elastic, sew two lines around the outside of the slipper about 1/2" or more apart. Leave a space in the lower stitching line to insert the elastic.
  8. The elastic piece should be about the same length as the distance from toe to heel. Using a safety pin on one end of the elastic, thread the elastic through the casing and zigzag the elastic ends together.
  9. Turn the slipper inside out and pin the double thick sole to the upper pieces, matching the toe and heel. Make sure to carefully pin all 4 thickness together all the way around and sew with 1/4" seam. If necessary, sew around again to make sure all layers are caught.
  10. Turn slipper right side out and turn down the cuff.
