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)

•Matching thread
•Scissors
•Marker

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.
