This is what you need for the slippers:

  • Felt panel, approx. 5 mm thick in gray (eg a placemat, approx. 25 €,
  • Felt plate, approx. 1 to 2 mm thick in white
  • Sticktwist in red (eg from Anchor / Kurzwaren)
  • red ribbon
  • Decorative beads
  • Sock stop (eg about 5 € from efco)
  • Shoe as a template
  • paper
  • pen
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • fabric scissors
  • needle
  • matching yarn (Material: Department Store)

And this is how it's done:

1. CREATE TEMPLATE: Transfer the size of the slipper to paper using an old shoe. Depending on the shoe, allow about 1 cm of addition all around. Then cut out template.

2. TRANSFER MOTIF: Then transfer the contours of the sole twice to the felt, one of which is mirror-inverted. For the upper shoe cap, transfer about a third of the sole contour to the felt. Trace the end edge with a ruler and extend 3 cm on each side. Now reconnect the ends in a gentle curve with the old sole form (see photo in the downloaded instructions, gives the fullness for the upper shoe). Record the second cap mirror-inverted.

3. CUT AND SEW: Cut out all felt pieces. Then sew the cap and sole together with a chain stitch. For this, lay the Stitching Knit double, so that a thick seam is created. It is best to sew the red ribbon straight away.

4. DECOR: For the ornamental flower, draw 2 Edelweiss contours on the lighter felt and cut out. Sew on decorative beads and at the same time sew the flower together. Then sew edelweiss flower on the shoe. To make the slippers slip-proof, finally apply a pattern under the sole with sock stop and work according to the manufacturer's instructions.
