Make two right soles as each slipper sole has two layers.

Left Sole

Left sole is a mirror image of the right.

Make two left soles as each slipper sole has two layers.

Joining the two Layers of the Soles and Adding the Batting

Hold the sole on top of the batting and cut around it. You can then trim it to make it ¼ inch smaller than the sole all around. Cut one more for the second sandal. If you are using plastic canvas, cut it out in the same way for both the sandals.

Overlap one left and right sole with the wrong sides touching and start to slip stitch them together. Start slip-stitching from the middle of the heel and continue until half the sole is joined, open it like a book and place the plastic canvas and the ½ inch batting inside as shown above. The plastic canvas should be the bottom layer so you don’t feel it when you walk. Slip stitch to close the entire sole with the plastic canvas and the batting sandwiched within. Fasten off. Repeat the same for the second sandal making sure you work the sl st on the upward-facing side.

Toe Top

Make 2.

Sizes Small & Medium

The finished toe top will measure 5 ½ inches on the wider side and 4- 7/8 inches on the narrower side.

Fasten off with a half-yard tail for sewing. Barring the 2 long tails for sewing weave in the rest of the tails.

Make one more toe top following the same pattern

Toe Top onto the Soles- All sizes

Place 2 markers 2 inches away from the toe side for sizes Small/ Medium and 2 ¼ inches away for Large and Extra Large. See pic 5 above.

Thread the yarn needle with the long yarn tail left on the narrow side of the toe top.

Now keep the narrow side of the toe top part right behind the marker in such a way that the edge of the toe top touches the edge of the sole, insert the needle vertically down through the side of the toe top and both the layers of the sole.

Then work your needle up through both the layers of the sole and through the side of the toe top. Repeat these two steps to reinforce the beginning end of the toe top. Continue in this fashion all the way to the end of the toe top. At the end again repeat these couple of steps to reinforce it. Make a couple of tight knots under the sole and hide the tail between the soles.

Now thread the second tail, make sure the toe top is aligned well and sew it from the backside towards the marker side. Knot and hide the yarn tails. Repeat with the second slipper.
