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:

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
<p>Awesome instructable! So easy to follow. Thank you</p>
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!
my feet are screaming for those!! Great job!!
Thanks! I can't find a 15 slipper anywhere!
Good job......smart one
Good job getting these done without instructions. They look SO comfy!
These came out great!
nice idea, will give these a go. <br> <br>lol reminded me of something I saw ages ago, I googled for it and ... <br>http://suereadsthenews.blogspot.co.uk/2008/06/beautiful-slippers-made-from-sanitary.html
I like your &quot;by hand&quot; 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.
Love them. Great instructable - well done. I'm off to hunt for material..
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. <br> <br>Thank you for making this excellent ible for these slippers!
Very good tutorial. Great explanation. This looks very much like a pair of mukluk slippers.
My future Moccasins. Thank you!
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.
Sounds like an Instructable to me. Looking forward to seeing your version. Thanks for commenting.
Love these!!! Would be perfect for my stepmom, who is always cold!
These are killer! I want to make some this weekend! <br>
Oooh, those look so soft!
They look so comfy!
