Baby Slippers Tutorial! this has a pattern for baby slippers if you don’t want to trace a shoe or foot
And there is the written format below. ENJOY AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
First, what you need for this project:
- Non-skid fabric
- Fabric colors (I used cotton and fleece)
- 1/4 or 1/8 elastic
- Sewing tools, googley eyes, red cotton ball, and any accessories you would like to add
- Next, trace your subject’s shoe or foot (if you are using their actual foot add 1/2 inch all the way around).
2. Trace the top of your childs shoe to make the front of the slipper. Cut four of these pieces. Then trace the back and cut 4 of these (add 1 inch to the long length side so you can overlap)
3. Take pattern facing pattern and sew the two front pieces together only on the straight side as shown (do this for both slippers).
4. Trim excess and turn right side out, iron right side out and sew across the top you ant on outside (this makes it look nicer.
5. Take pattern facing pattern for both back pieces and sew across one long side for both slippers.
6. Take your elastic and cut it about 2.5 to 3 inches shorter than the length of the back piece and pin it and pull it tight while sewing across to the end. This is still on the wrong side.
7. Flip the fabric over the elastic with right side out and iron and then sew right below the elastic and down the sides
8. Freehanded antlers by looking at a picture of antlers. cut 4 sew around except bottom and stuff it.
9. Check sizing and put front and back piece pinned together with pattern facing down (right now you should only see (the side that is up) what will be on the inside when you are finished done).
10. After pinning the front to the back and the antlers in between the front and back piece, sew across front to attach front and back piece
This is what it should look like now.
11. Line up the sole two pieces with the patterns on the outside (not the usual, but it doesn’t matter since its on the bottom) You can see it in the back there with the nonskid on top.
12. Line up the sole with the top piece (nonstick sole facing upwards to the reindeer face) by finding the middle of the front and back (you can fold to find this). Then sew all the way around. And turn right side out and WAH-LA!!
I sewed on the red cotton ball nose and hot glue gunned the eyes on. If you have a little one then please don’t use googely eyes since they might try and eat them!
