steps

  1. Trace templates onto two pieces of felt

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