Slippers Materials



Step 1: Cut out pieces

Using the template cut out both the left and right soles out of the fleece, Sherpa and sew foam. To do this place the template right side up for the right foot and then flip the template for the left foot. Also cut the following out of both the fleece and the Sherpa- two backs, two tongues, and two toe panels. The toe panel will have to be flipped over for the left foot but the other two are symmetrical so they are the same for both feet.

Step 2: Pin and Sew

To assemble the pieces, you are going to sew the lining separate from the otter shell and then at the end we will attach them together. So, starting with the lining, pin the curved end of the tongue to the direct center of the flat end of the toe panel with right sides facing. Sew them together.


Now pin one of the short sides of the back panel to the tongue and toe piece with the right sides facing, sew this together.


Then pin the other end of the back panel to the other side of the tongue and toe piece with right sides facing and sew this down.

Lastly pin the sole to the top of your slipper with right sides facing. Sew around the edge.


Do this to both slipper linings.

Then follow the same steps for the outer lining, but sew the sew foam to the wrong side of the sole first. Flip the outer shell right-side out and leave the lining with the fuzzy Sherpa on the inside.

Step 3: Attach the pieces

Stuff the lining into the outer shell. Fold in the edges of the lining and the outer shell a quarter inch in and sew around the top edge. You can leave this edge as it is or fold it over depending on what look you’re going for.

Step 5: Apply scribbles

If you want your slippers to have a little grip, paint scribbles paint on the bottom of them for tread. You can do polka dots, lines or a pretty design. Just allow the paint to dry before wearing them. And now your slippers are complete.
