Introduction: How to Make Warm House Slippers

Picture of How to Make Warm House Slippers

I needed just a simple slipper to keep my feet warm on our cold cement Floored kitchen and bathroom.  I got this idea from the Pink Slipper Project.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
•Outer fabric (either cotton, or a flannel, or anything that you feel would be comfy)
•batting (you can use iron on batting to make the sewing easier if you like)
•Sole material (I used felt, you just want something to keep you from slipping)
•Sewing machine
•Matching thread

Step 2: Step 1: Bottom Pattern

Make your pattern by outlining your feet on the top side of the outer fabric.  Make sure to use both feet for the pattern so you will not end up with two left feet!

Drawing the line approximately one inch from your foot all  the way around.

Step 3: Step 2: Cutting

Using the patterns you drew of your two feet, cut your materials as follows:

Right Foot:
Cut 2 - Primary Fabric
Cut 3 - Iron on Batting
Cut 1 Sole

Left Foot:

Cut 2 - Primary Fabric
Cut 3 - Iron on Batting
Cut 1 Sole

Step 4: Step 3: Top of Slipper

Draw the toe about1 in larger and bring it down about a half way to three-fourths down the top foot section on the primary fabric
