bedroom slippers - sewing pattern for soft fabric slippers
THE BEDROOM SLIPPERS The bedroom slippers are soft slippers for traveling, or for wearing around the house. Great for when your feet need a comfortable rest!
The pattern is for a medium slipper, or ladies' US size 6/7, but includes instructions on how to adjust the pattern to make other sizes.
The slippers are a great project for a beginner ready for a bit of a challenge (like working with curved pattern pieces and skinny elastic), but satisfying for more experienced sewers as well.
Lightweight woven fabric for the body of the slipper, and medium to heavyweight woven fabric for the sole. Fusible fleece and a medium-weight, fusible interfacing add structure and comfort to the sole of the slipper. Avoid fabrics that are sheer, stretchy, knit, drapey, slippery, lightweight, or with pile like velvet or faux fur.
Why not add a pretty flower or a cute pom-pom to your slippers? Just because you're only lounging around the house doesn't mean your feet can't have fun! Check out a tutorial on my blog for making fabric flowers: http://www.blog.hollandcox.com/2013/11/in-bloom-year-round/
