Coordinating sewing cotton
Selection of coordinating/complementary embroidery threads & fibres
Small beads, sequins, fine ribbon, trims etc for embellishment (these slippers will be approx 3.5" long)
Slipper Templates from Issue 50 of Stitch magazine or Annette's Etsy shop
Fuse fabric to felt using bondaweb, if you are using a sheer fabric like organza, consider applying foil or fine fibres to the bondawebed felt before fusing the top sheer fabric.
Using slipper templates trace 2 sets of uppers & soles onto felt side of fabric & cut out.
Blanket stitch in matching embroidery floss using 2 strands & small stitches around the edges of all of the cut out pieces.
Now the fun starts, decorate your slipper uppers using embroidery, beads sequins etc.
Once the decorating is complete, make up the slippers by stitching first the back seam of the uppers, then attaching them to the sole using small slip stitches through the blanket stitches around the edges, using one strand of embroidery floss in the same colour used for the blanket stitching.
Once the slippers are made up they can be further embellished around the top edges with beading, or couching fine cord or fibres etc.
