How to sew your home slippers – tutorial and pattern

My daughter needed new slippers and I decided to sew a new pair of them for her. I thought that sewing slippers for her was a cute project to make and she would be super happy to know that I had made them specially for her.

Together we had bought a foxy fleece fabric a few months ago and I thought it would be perfect to make slippers.

These slippers can be done in no time. So, are you ready to follow this tutorial?

Measure the length of a pair of shoes the person you are going to make the slippers for wears, and adjust accordingly. The length in this pattern is 23 cm. This pattern doesn’t include the seam allowance, so just add 1 cm (or 3/8″) all around and you are good to go!

You need to cut the soles 2 times in the fabric and 2 times in the lining. And the outer part is to be cut 4 times in the fabric and 4 times in the lining (2 for each foot). Don’t forget to add the seam allowance as shown here.

Start by sewing the outer fabric at the top. Right sides together. From the extreme left to the mark you will see in the pattern.Sewing slippers tutorial

Press the seams.Sewing slippers tutorial

This is how it looks from the right side, just about 2/3 of it have been sewn together.Sewing slippers tutorial

Now, stitch the back of the slipper.Sewing slippers tutorial

When you turn it this is how it will look.Sewing slippers tutorial

You have a hole at the top, where your feet will go ;-)Sewing slippers tutorial

Do the same with the other foot, and with the 2 linings. Sewing slippers tutorial

Pin separately the sole to each top part. You’ll have to do this 4 times (2 for the main fabric and for each foot and 2 for the lining and for each foot).

Sew the 2 pieces around.Sewing slippers tutorial

Once you’ve sewn and serged them, you can knotch the round edges.

Pin the 2 pieces together at the top.Sewing slippers tutorial  Sew them together, living a whole that you will use to turn it all the way around. Sewing slippers tutorial

You can see here I left a space.Sewing slippers tutorial

Ops! turn them right sides out and you will see they are stitched where the foot is suppose to enter the slipper. That is correct.

Now, you’ll put the lining inside and the right side of the lining fabric will be the one that you see (all the seams are hidden in between the 2 fabrics). Here is where you can add the batting to your slippers. If you don’t want to, just jump to the next step. If you are inserting batting to your slippers, just make sure that you put the same amount all over; introduce it in between the 2 soles (remember that you have a hole).

You can also have a flat batting, in that case, you’ll cut it 2 times following the sole pattern and pin it to the outer fabric sole and stitch it together when you sew the upper part of the slipper and the sole. Make sure you pin it to the wrong side of the sole.

    This tutorial and pattern are perfect. We do a Ministry project for Nursing homes. Too late for this year’s project, buying socks to take them. These will be more personal, made with Love ????????.

  3. Thanks for your great tutorial!!!
    My version is there :
    They are just perfect and I love them 🙂

  4. How would you add a nonslip bottom to these? They look super fun but my family all has hardwood floors?

    • Hi Norma, I would just cut the outside soles in a non slip fabric, something with a little bit of rubber or something similar. Hope it helps! 😉

  5. I just finished a pair using this tutorial. It was very easy to follow. But it’s not letting me leave you a pic 🙁

  6. I love how easy these look. Especially with your great pictures and tutorial. I think I’ll make mine with gripper soles and insert $ dollar store insoles. I’ll try an extra layer of fleece for the batting. I’m making a robe for my niece for Christmas, now she can have matching slippers.
