OK, first come the traveling slippers.
Percale or chintz, plain and printed--1/4 yd. of each; denim or drill cloth--1/4 yd.; cotton batting or scraps of heavy woolen fabric--1/4 yd.; percale bias trim in contrasting color--2 yds.; elastic (3/8" wide)--1/2 yd.
Directions for cutting:
Sole--3 pieces, pattern no. VII, 1 denim, 1 plain percale, 1 cotton batting.
Top--3 pieces, pattern no. VIII, 1 plain percale, 1 printed percale, 1 cotton batting (or several thicknesses of woolen fabric).
Ties--2 pieces, each 2" by 12", printed percale.
Directions for making:
1. Place batting (or woolen) between denim and percale pieces of sole (No. Vii), and between plain and print pieces of top (No. VIII), right sides of fabric out.
2. Baste layers together and machine quilt. To machine quilt, mark off diamond shapes by marking lines about 3/4" apart to cover piece. Machine stitch along these lines (see slipper illustration).
3. Bind edges of both pieces with bias trim.
4. Top stitch another piece of bias trim over binding just applied around rounded edge of top piece on printed side, turning under 1/2" at each end.
5. Baste top to upper side (percale) of sole, matching center fronts.
6. Whipstitch free edge of bias trim to under (denim) side of sole.
7. Fold 2" by 12" strips in half lengthwise (right side inside).
8. Stitch edges together along 12" side.
9. Turn strips, insert 8" of elastic in each and whip ends of elastic to ends of strip. Turn under ends of strip and whip to slipper top at each side of center notch.
