Gather your materials, including downloading and printing the template for the slippers. The template is made to fit size ladies size 7-9.5 (US). You'll find it HERE.
20" of non-slip material, the stuff I found is made by Jiffy. It was available off a bolt at my local fabric store.
20" by 20" of white terry cloth, I found a great deal on this by the yard at fabric.com
cotton batting (I prefer warm & natural)
26" grosgrain ribbon or equivalent length zippers
fat quarter of coordinating cotton print
AND the secret ingredient...thick foam, like from a yoga mat. I think you could also use a favorite premade insole, too.Nice to have, but not required, basting spray.
Step One. Cut out your pattern pieces.
From the large size template, you'll cut your non slip and terry pieces. Just flip over for right and left.
From the smaller size template, you'll cut your cotton batting and yoga mat pieces.
Step Two. Assemble your slipper.
First, sew the ribbon or zipper to the slipper.
Next, sew the fabric strip to the terry, right sides together. Be sure the first piece of fabric has a finished edge, or is turned under.
Insert the foam pad.
Finally, sew the slipper closed.
Repeat for the other slipper. It should be a mirror image of the first.
A couple tips or hints if you wish to use the zipper for a toe hold:
