The Becky Footie Slipper Knit Pattern
Elliot got really excited about the first green pair I made him and wore them all over the house right away. They were a little snug so I made the blue pair a little bigger, and now Clementine has started wearing the first pair. Step 1 left : Trace both feet of the wearer carefully.

If you have to let the wearer play Mario Kart or Angry Birds to make this happen, no one here is going to hold that against you. Step 2 right : Using a piece of tracing paper or a dryer sheet, superimpose both foot outlines with the heels overlapping. Smooth out any bumps as you trace. You can see where I did this at the top of the toes. Step 5 left : Measure around your seam line carefully with a measuring tape or string.
Step 6 right : Now take half of the seam measurement and write that number down. Step 7 above : Draw your pattern piece for the upper part of the slipper upper using the template provided below. The pattern piece will consist of a line across the bottom that is X long, a vertical line on the right side that is 0. Remember that those little boxes in the corners indicate right angles.
Note: You can also go ahead and round the corners adjacent to the diagonal line a little if you like. So for each pair of slippers, cut 8 upper pieces, four tongue pieces, and two soles. Hint: Cut the fleece for the upper parts of the slippers with the stretchiest direction of the fleece running parallel to the bottom of the foot. Step 2 right : Sew ric-rac along the front edge of a slipper upper piece, with the edge of the ricrac lined up with the front edge of the fleece. Try to stitch along the middle of the ricrac as close to the front edge of the ric-rac as possible without going off the ricrac at all, if that makes sense.
Step 5 left : Turn lining inside out and place outside of slipper over it so their right sides are facing. Step 6 right : Turn both right side out. Now push the lining back inside slipper not shown. I usually try to line up the stitching with valleys in the ric rac, and I backstitch before and after the ric rac instead of sewing over it, which can flatten it.
Step 8 left : Cut elastic roughly the length of the slipper and put a safety pin at the end. Step 9 right : Thread elastic through casing. Pin ends and try on your child if possible, adjust elastic length if necessary, then zigzag stitch back and forth through both layers of elastic to secure. Step 11 right : Attach tongue to the center front of the outside of the sole by sewing across the short side of the tongue. Now turn it inside out not shown.
Step 11 right : Take a look at the front center seam of your slipper. This step is optional but I find it makes it easier to sew the upper part of the slipper to the sole. I did this with the blue slippers but not the green ones because I had curved their pieces a little more when I cut them out and found it helps make a nicer looking slipper. Step 12 left : Pin center front and center back of slipper to sole with outsides facing the inside of the sole and the inside of the upper part of the slipper should be facing out.
Pin around entire slipper, carefully lining up all three edges as you pin. Step 15 above : Turn slipper right-side out. Step Sew buttons on either side of ric rac to resemble eyes. If you make a pair of these slippers, please put your pictures in the Celebrate the Boy photo pool so we can all enjoy them! I cannot believe how adorable these are!
