Welcome to the Handmade Holidays event on The Country Chic Cottage! Twelve days of handmade gift tutorials and shops to help complete your Christmas list. Enjoy our first guest poster Stacey from Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy!
Hi, I’m Stacey and I blog at Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! As the name suggests, I’m a momma of three boys. When I’m not cleaning up after, washing and folding laundry for, or wrangling my rowdy crew, you can find me in my craft corner. My crafting and sewing often for them, but I also love making homemade gifts for my friends and family.
And pillows, which I think make fabulous gifts.
Which is why every November, I promise myself that I’m going to get started on making everyone handmade Christmas gifts. Thanks to Angie, this year I’m getting started on the right foot.
Today I’m sharing with you my tutorial for handmade guest slippers.
Nylon thread and needle
Slipper Gripper (optional)
To create my slipper pattern, I traced a set of my husband’s shoes as well as my own. Cut out and trace 2 of each pattern for each slipper.
Then cut and trace the slipper top pattern. Be sure to place the pattern on the fold of your fabric.
When the slipper top is cut it will look like a folded oval.
Now you are ready to sew.
If you want to create a “Guest Slipper” basket for someone, go ahead and create 6 to 8 pairs, making 1/2 women’s and 1/2 men’s. If you make your pattern from a larger male or female foot, their small and average foot sized guests should be very comfortable.
My example of “manly” embellishment
Place your slipper sets in a small basket or box and they make a great gift for the perfect hostess!
Thank you, Angie, for letting me share. Please let me know if you stop around at my corner of Blogland and feel free to contact me with any questions.
Thanks Stacey!! Handmade slippers — what a wonderful and thoughful gift!
Stay tuned for the next twelve days as we get all kinds of tutorials and handmade shops to explore!
