How to do it

Step 1

Print slipper template. Enlarge or reduce template so it's the length of the sole of a flat shoe the recipient wears. Cut accordingly. Trace template outline onto felt with chalk pen. Cut out slipper and T-shaped slit, following template.

Step 2

Fold felt in half lengthwise, and stitch around the toe and open side, leaving the shorter heel edge open.

Step 3

Pinch heel closed, then sew from the top of the heel down. Leave 1/2 inch open for smaller sizes and 1 inch for larger sizes. Cut into the felt (1/2 inch for small sizes, 1 inch for large ones) to create a flap at the heel as shown, below center. A small flap of fabric should be left sticking out.

Step 5

Round off the tag with scissors, fold up, then sew to outside of slipper.

Step 6

Fold the cuff at the ankle, then sew cuff edge to slipper. (To accommodate a wider foot, trim a deeper curve along the top of the opening.)

Step 7

When sewing your second slipper, remember to flip felt so your T-shaped slit is on the opposite side.
