Thank you for choosing to sew along with us!
We always have a great time Sewing Together at Hawthorne
Threads and we’re so glad you’ve decided to join the fun. For us
its a wonderful way for our staff to connect with the fabric and,
for some, to learn a lifelong skill while on the job. We endeavor
to choose projects suitable for many skill levels so grab a friend
or family member and get ready to sew together!

FINISHED PIECE
1
Cut pieces from fabric:
First, cut the exterior layers from chosen exterior fabric and
fusible fleece using the slipper pattern provided.
Trace sole from pattern and
cut from grip-tight.
For the lining, trim ⅛” evenly
from seam allowance around
perimeter of pattern (¼” from
vamp sides) and cut from sherpa.
You should have:
2 cotton exterior pieces
2 sherpa interior pieces
2 fusible fleece pieces
2 grip-tight sole pieces
(Soles not
to scale)
Mark center lines and the ⅜” seam
allowance at the fold line now, on
the wrong side of your sherpa. It will
help to have it when sewing later.
Now is also a good time to plot your
eyelet placements on the exterior
fabric, their centers positioned about
an inch in from the edge of the fabric.
Repeat all steps for both left and right slipper.
Iron on fusible fleece
to the wrong sides of
the exterior pieces.

Use a
press
cloth!
3
Align sole right-side-up onto exterior piece of
slipper, lining up bottom edges and matching
center lines. Pin in place.
Using a zigzag or blanket stitch
on your machine, applique sole
piece flat onto exterior piece.
Pin arms to vamps on all exterior and interior pieces,
right sides together + sew.
Start
at the toes
to avoid
puckering!
Press exterior seams in
towards top of foot and
sherpa seams open.
4
Use ⅜”
seams.
Place exterior piece right side up on your workspace, turn vamp so it is
inside-out.
5
Layer on sherpa interior
right-side-down, its vamp
right-side-out and tucked into
the exterior so that the toes
meet, right sides together.
Line up all edges of interior
to edges of exterior, align
vamp seams + pin.
Beginning at the bottom edge, leaving the outsole open, sew around slipper perimeter.

When you reach the corner at the fold,
sew along your marked seam
allowance and stop at the end mark.
With the needle still in the fabric, lift
presser foot and turn perpendicular to
corner, sew no more than one or two
stitches across (backstitch for strength),
lift foot again and turn to align with the
next marked seam allowance.
Continue around perimeter, repeating
the same process at other corner.
fo ld l ine
Leave about a 3”opening at the outsole
for turning.
Do
not clip
through
seams!
Clip all
corners and
the seam
allowances
at folds.
Clip about 2” of
excess fabric and
fleece where
outsole overlaps to
lessen bulk.
Turn slipper through opening, push out corners and
situate so that lining is on the inside. Press seams flat.
Topstitch along outer edge at ¼” to
secure everything in place.
Also topstitch across loose seam
allowance at opening at ⅛” to close.
6
Pinch up vamp
seams of
exterior only,
press + pin.
Topstitch along at about ⅛”,
stopping before the ends of the
fabric and backstitch.
Press up towards top of foot.
7
Cut two small equal squares
from your scraps to make
tongue stays.
Fold into thirds and topstitch at ⅛”
down either side.
Press flat.
Center on tongue vertically,
positioned between 2nd and 3rd
eyelet down from top edge of
boot (exact placement will differ
based on size),

Tack down one end
right-side-down, then
flip right-side-up.
Applique that end down.
Fold over other end and
pin so that it bubbles up.
Applique down.
8
Using your
eyelet
placement
marks
attach eyelets for lacing
(or, if you prefer, sew in
buttonholes.)
9
Position vamp on base of slipper, using the edges of the soles as your
guide. Pin in place.
It may
help to mark
along the edges
of the sole on
the interior
with pins.
Carefully try on your slippers
(however you intend to wear
them, barefoot or with socks.)
If you find your vamp is too tight
or too roomy, adjust slightly and evenly on either side for your desired width.
Sew vamp down along
side edges to base of
slipper by hand.
Try to catch all of the
layers in your stitch,
sherpa, fleece, cotton,
and the outsole if you
can. The more layers
you catch, the
stronger it will hold.
Again,
begin at
the toes.
Measure down the sides of the open boot
backs and place pins at 3” intervals to use
temporarily as markers.
Fold up back, aligning
the top edges and the
markers along the back
edges of the boot
+ pin.
10
Sew
boot sides
together
with
decorative
stitch by
hand or by
machine.
Match markers carefully for a smooth seam!
Fold up point at the heel using
sole edges as a guide. Center
point over the back seam + pin.
Sew down by hand.

Cut your length of cording in half.
Lace them up!
