While the pattern is simple enough, I had a difficult sizing them properly since my daughters feet were too big for the child’s sizes and too small for the adult ones. I finally got the right size by tracing my daughter’s feet on a piece of paper and using the scaling option on my printing options to shrink the pattern for the adult size small and comparing them by placing the pattern and my drawn foot outline on top of one another holding them up to the light. After about 6 tries, I got the right size!
Sewing the slipper was very simple – it only took about 20 minutes per slipper. I used fleece for the exterior and interior and non-slip fabric for the bottom sole.
Since the pattern doesn’t offer a tutorial, or many images, I thought I’d post a follow along for you. Please note: these are not detailed directions, you can get those from the pattern. This is simply a visual aid (along with a few notes) to help you follow the pattern.
1. Cut out all the pieces (I used the same fleece for both lining and exterior)
This picture only shoes the pieces for one slipper. You will notice that the pattern calls for you to cut the instep pieces on the fold of the fabric (creating one piece), however, I was using fabric scraps, so I cut separate pieces and sewed them together at the back.
1. Place the lining and outer fabric together (placing one inside the other) making sure that the right sides are together. (One piece will have the raw seams showing, while the other will not)
1. Pin the sole to the instep – make sure that the bottom of your sole is facing the inside of the slipper – you will turn this right side out after stitching
1. Turn the slipper
