This winter you need to keep your feet warm – what better way than this slipper tutorial. Get ready to sew up!
What You Need
- 1/4 yard of leather
- about a 1/4 yard of denim
- 1/4 yard of cozy fabric
- matching thread
First – figure out what size you’re going to make. I used this other pair of slippers to trace out the bottom – then cut.
For the sides – each side is 12.5 inches long. The cozy inside is 5 inches high while the denim fabric is 4.5 inches high at the high end and 4 inches high at the low end. You want the cozy fabric to be a bit taller, so it folds over the edge when you’re slipper is finished.
Once everything is cut out – time to serge up. Put the right sides together and use your serge to serge the back seam and the top, be sure to leave the foot hole opening open.
Now, put the right side of the cozy fabric together with the right side of the denim. Pin the foot opening together and serge all around. Notice how the cozy fabric folds over a bit – that’s what you want.
Time for the bottom – pin the right side of the leather to the right side of the denim – the wrong side of the leather will be facing the same way as the right side of the cozy fabric (the inside of the slipper). Serge all around.
Notice the large seam? We’re going to fix this so it doesn’t rub against your foot and cause irritation.
Top stitch all around the bottom of the slipper, thus inclosing the serged seam. See how neat it looks?
