|Here are all my pieces cut out. I used a soft flannel print for the outside and a furry sherpa fleece for the lining.|
|Then with right sides together sew along the top part and about 1/2 inch down the side of the top piece. (not the toe end but the other end) Then clip the corners and turn it right side out|
|Then just to secure the two layers of the sole together I sewed wrong sides together to kind of “quilt” the two layers together. I just followed the lines in the print but you could do a design if you wanted.|
|Then take the rectangle and sew it right sides together along the short side to create a tube. Do this with both layers and then put them wrong sides together so it looks like the picture.|
|Then starting at the side seam, pin right sides together pinning the top piece to the band, as shown in the picture. Then sew in place, but don’t sew down the little flaps on each side that you made in the last step.|
|Then when you turn it right side out it should look something like the picture above. (a really weird platform slipper ha ha) I also turned under the remaining edge and sewed it in place.|
|So I took some embroidery floss and pinched the edge around the toe and stitched some X’s so it had that moccasin look, (or at least in my mind)|
|Then with right sides together sew the sole to the slipper.|
|Then in attempt to make it feel “tighter” I used some knit ribbing and made a faux sock type thing and sewed it to the slipper. Still not “tight” enough for the 3 year old. So I start taking in the sides and making it smaller all around.|
Hey! I like that! I can not find boy slipper patterns out there. This looks achievable.
Awesome!!! They're little boy moccasins! I linked to your tutorial over at Craft Gossip Sewing:<br />http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutorial-moccasin-slippers-for-boys/2010/12/21/<br /><br />–Anne
Hey, I have the same fabric laying around. I made a pillow for my son with that. I might just attempt making the slipper with it if I have enough left.
This is so great!!! Thank You for sharing! I will be making these for my boys for Christmas using Chicago Bears Fleece.
I had to laugh after reading it! 😉 Thanks for sharing!!!
I think they look Awesome! Have you thought of up-cycling the tops of socks (those little toes seem to go right through them, but the tops are just fine.) and adding them to the slipper?
Thanks for this. I’ve been trawling the web all day (and night) looking at kids costumes to make for my three boys for Christmas and this one is the first one that made me chuckle 😀 The thing we do for our kids aye? Bless em <3
