Tips for Sewing a Pair of Slippers

  • For easiest construction, use a Cuddle® 3 or a Luxe Cuddle® such as Chenille, Weave, Brooklyn for the outer slipper.
  • For the lining, use a Cuddle® 3 for the sides (the U-shapped piece).
  • For the sole lining, you can do all sorts of things: use a Cuddle® 3 by itself, quilt Cuddle® 3 to Soft And Stable® or batting, use Luxe Cuddle® Sherpa or Luxe Cuddle® Llama.
  • If wanted, you can add embroidery detail to the front toe of slipper prior to cutting or add a ribbon after sewing.
