Step 1: Download and Print Pattern
Start with downloading and printing *jaszmade’s easy mod slippers pattern. If you have like me german size 38/ UK size 5/ US size 7 you skip the next step. Those of you who want to make felt slippers for their Blythe dolls as well will find a little extra coming with this pattern: I added Blythesize slippers as well! heheee…
Step 2: Adjusting the Pattern for your Size
To adjust the pattern to a bigger or smaller size than mine, you simply trace around a well fitted pair of your shoes. I chose one of my fave pumps by Daniel Hechter (loooove them!). Make your pattern a little wider than the shoe. Another idea is to draw around your naked foot.
Step 3: Cutting the inside sole
Your mod slippers consist of a shell (mine is black) and an“ inside sole” (mine is pink). First thing you need to do is cutting the inside sole using the pattern without the flips/wings of the second page of the downloaded pattern. Be sure to cut a left and a right piece just turning/mirroring your pattern.
Those of you who adjusted the size (step2), you cut around your freshly made drawing from step 2. You will also need the flips/wings of the second page.
Step 4: Cutting the Shell
Now add the second page’s wings/ flips to your pattern/drawing and cut the shell. Be sure to cut a left and a right piece just turning/mirroring your pattern.
Step 5: Bring Sole and Shell together
I find it easier to sew the sole and shell after glueing them together. I used fabric glue to do so.
Most modern sewing machines should manage sewing two thick felt layers together, if yours doesn’t sew it by hand.
Step 6: Closing and Add Something Fancy
Now just close the flips/wings with two stitches and add whatever your heart is after… like a felt flower, a beeeeeeeg button, a brooch… you see there are endless possibilities!
