Here's my new slippers:

And the bottom:

And here's the basic shapes I used to make them:


1.) I made the soles by just tracing around my foot.
2.) Sew the "heel" onto the outersole.
3.) The top I made by pretty much cutting a whole sheet of felt into that shape and then trimming the back from there.
4.) Sew the backs of the top.
5.) Sew the top onto the soles.
6.) Sew the top strap on.
7.) Make a "button" (real or otherwise) of your choice.
8.) As for the bottoms, I used glitter glue, but others have recommended puffy paint. I think this may be a better choice.

There's two things I would recommend doing (that I didn't think of until after). On the first outside layer of the soles, I would just sew across the straight part of the "heel" -and then the curved part will get sewn when you sew on the top. Also I would leave a hole so that you can stuff something soft into the two layers (like pillow stuffing).

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these! I've been looking for a secret santa pressy to make for someone I don't know that well & I think this might be it! Thank-you! Kiss

P.S. I couldn't see your pics so I had to do the properties thing. Do try & fix it 'cause I know others will want to see these! Grin

I've made one shoe out of felt so far and I've been too scared to do the next one because I'm afraid I'll mess it up. You have inspired me to do the next one!
Good Job they are really cute!
