Bell Slippers

Prepare homemade or store-bought slippers for the holidays with the addition of bells. Following a European custom, we have filled ours with presents.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Trace templates onto two pieces of felt

  2. Step 2

    Cut the traced templates out of the felt (for a scalloped upper, use scallop-edge scissors to cut out inner curve on U-shaped piece, or hole punch a pattern around upper if desired).

  3. Step 3
