These beauties accompany us with style on trips around the globe – and they hardly take up any space in our suitcases. Of course, the slippers in bright pink are also great for home use, as they are also non-slip thanks to the nubbly latex on the bottom, and the cuddly velvet has our feet feeling cozy and comfortable. Read on to see how to make…

Velvet Slippers Steps 1 2

Step 1: Cut small sole without seam allowance from Decovil, iron to the wrong side of the velvet fabric and cut with 2 cm seam allowance. Stitch around the curved edges by hand and pull in around Decovil and set aside.

Step 2: Also cut out the large sole from Decovil and iron on velvet. Cut the sole again from Style-Vil (foam) and fasten it by hand on the Decovil sole.

Step 3: Stitch and pull in basting threads to evenly ease around the edges so that the seam allowance lays inwards. Mark the flap placement with plastic head pins.

Step 4: Cut flap with 2 cm extra on right and left for seam allowances, and iron on Style-Vil and to the wrong side of the velvet. Add 2 cm seam allowance to the velvet at the top and bottom and sew inside by hand.

Step 5: Cut the flap again with 2 cm seam allowances out of the velvet, iron in the seam allowance, pin it from the wrong side of the flap in step 4 and sew all around.

Step 6: Clamp the large and small soles together on one side, insert the flap 2 cm in on one side and stitch around. Caution: leave an opening for the flap on the other side.

Step 7: Now put the flap 2 cm into the opening and sew it by hand.

Step 8: Cut out a large felt sole and press it against the slipper from the bottom. Sew all by hand with thread.

    Got to say it’s really sad what this site has become. So much spam getting through. I remember when this was an awesome community for seamstresses. I had an account years ago. I remember finding people like Oona Balloona on here. Wth happened? :(

      “A star was born” – apparently they decided that all content should be pushed “from above” not made by members.
      + you can see a lot of greediness in posts. It’s like they want to profit from everyone who enters here.
