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.


  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


    Sew from midpoint of toe of upper and sole to midpoint of heel. Repeat on other side.

  4. Step 4

    Trim extra felt.

  5. Step 5

    Embroider swag design with embroidery thread or sew on bows.

  6. Step 6


    Sew on bells.
