Welcome to Friday!! I'm really giving you a free pattern today, Yea!!!!!!!!! Make sure and read all the way to the end.Last winter I came across this slipper in a catalog. I liked it, especially for traveling, but look at the price. The $26.95 was not the price for two, it was the price per pair of slippers if you bought two. I don't think so. As I looked at them I thought, how hard can this be? As it turns out, not hard at all.
Cut 2 soles out of Slipper Gripper.
Cut 2 soles out of fleece.
The layer of fleece will be against your foot and inside the slipper.
Cut 2 sock extensions. Serge the top of the sock extension as you see above and below.
Fold the sock extension in half and serge the center seam.
Cut 2 of the toe caps and serge them to the sock extensions as you see below.
The slipper is beginning to take shape.
Now match the soles to the top of the slippers. There will be ease in the slippers so pin in place before serging.
Fold down the top edge of the slipper about 1".
Zigzag over the serged edge.
The slipper is complete.If the slipper is too large, you can always go around it with another row of serging and just come in as much as will make a comfortable slipper for you.
So....the pattern is FREE!!! Just click HERE to download the pattern. There are 3 sizes on the pattern. The medium size was the slipper I originally made for myself. I wear an American size 7 shoe. The medium size would fit a size 8 as well. I sized the pattern up so that it would fit my husband. He wears a men's size 10 shoe. The slipper is definitely large enough to accommodate a men's size 11 as well. I sized the slipper down to a small. You may need to tweak it a bit, but I think you can make it work. If by chance you don't have a serger, you may always zigzag the edges. These make wonderful gifts. They are so fast to make, less than an hour for the pair, cut to finish. They would also be wonderful as items to sell in a bizarre.
I also have another slipper pattern available. This pattern is the same slipper, but it includes a small size for children, a medium size for women, and an optional cuff. Just click HERE to download the pattern.
