Picture of DIY Slippers
My feet are cold, a lot.  I don’t wear slippers too much because they don’t stay on.  One day while surfing the web, I came across a pattern for slippers.  No directions, no explanations, just a pattern and pictures of the finished product.  (The pattern can be found here:  http://www.sewnews.com/articles/Cozy_Toes.)   Today I had some free time and I already had the supplies gathered up from my fabric stash.  So I made these warm slippers, and since there was no directions, I did it my way, which meant a lot of trial and error.  So here we go.

Step 1:

Picture of
½ yd. warm and soft fabric for lining the slippers
½ yd. upholstery fabric for the outside (left over from another project)
Large hand sewing needle
Size 10 crochet thread (color to compliment or contrast with upholstery fabric)
Sewing machine
Pattern, found here:  http://www.sewnews.com/articles/Cozy_Toes.) 
Paper scissors
Fabric scissors
Straight pins

I've been looking for a pair of slippers that I like, that would fit my giant feet, and that wouldn't be terribly expensive. This looks like a way to be all three!! Thanks so much for sharing this, it rocks!

I like your "by hand" approach, so you don't have to try to fit the pieces into a sewing machine. For longevity, it would be good to spray something for a backing on the soles, if you can't find a heavier-duty fabric for them.

Excellent, clear instructions and good looking slippers. I tried making them from another website and they were awful, these look great.

It is easy enough to add a 1/4 inch seam allowance to the pattern so that you can sew these on a sewing machine. I also like the suggestion from shazni that you sew them with the right sides together and then turn them inside out for a nice finished edge. Thats what I would do for the sides and the top of the slippers.

Thank you for making this excellent ible for these slippers!

This is nice and comfy looking ...but i have a suggestion...rather than keep the wrong sides together...why not keep the right sides together ..sew it and turn it over...that way it would have a neater finish like the original...also...slip in an elastic between the fabric and sew at the back instead of gathering...that way it would be easy to slip on and off...this is of course my opinion... :-) as I sometimes..tend to go over board.
