Slipper Sew Along { Day 1 }

Good Morning!
I am so glad you decided to join me this week for the Slipper Sew Along.
Wanna get in on it? It's not the late!
Click HERE for the list of supplies.

OK, today is going to be super easy.
Prepare your fabrics by washing, drying, and ironing them.
(You should always do this before you start cutting out  have prepared your pattern)
After you have prepared your fabrics you are ready to cut out the pattern pieces.
First you'll need to determine what size you need to make. I wear a 10 and the large is a perfect fit.
My Mom wears an 8 so I am making her the medium size.

Cut out your pieces as directed by the pattern. In addition cut 2 pieces of fusible interfacing for the straps.
It really gives some stability to the straps. Otherwise they are really flimsy.
Also I couldn't find Jiffy Grip so I am using red suede for the soles.


Now you are ready to iron your interfacing to wrong side of the top pieces and the straps.

Iron the fusible fleece to the wrong side of the inner soles.

Transfer pattern markings onto your fabric.
That's it for today.
I'll see you tomorrow and we will start sewing our slippers!
