I’ve been working on crocheting a pair of slippers for my husband in colours from Fallout, his favourite video game. In trying to figure out how to make the hard soles he had requested instead of the usual soft soles, I came up with this.

You will need:

    -- patterned/textured PVC fabric (available at most large fabric stores)
    -- craft foam
    -- fabric on the thicker side (cotton is suggested, I used an old pair of jeans)
    -- cardboard
    -- pen
    -- quality large scissors (you will be cutting through the PVC)
    -- Shoe Goo
    -- popsicle stick or other instrument for spreading glue that you are prepared to not get back

Step 1:

Make a template by tracing the outline of the person’s foot using the cardboard and pen. Compare it to the bottom of the actual slipper and make any necessary adjustments. Cut out your finished template and use it to cut out four pieces of craft foam, two pieces of PVC fabric, and two pieces of regular fabric. Pay attention to right vs. left soles as you do this.
