Cut the patterns out. I folded the polar fleece in half to make sure that the two sides were uniform. Then I traced the sole of the slipper onto denim. I used denim to make the sole of the slipper more durable; and I just always happen to have denim on hand. Make sure to trace the sole in polar fleece (or whatever you are using for the main rest of the slipper) for warmth and thickness. Pin the patterns together inside out and then put them on your feet. Make sure to use both your feet or you will end up with two left foot slippers. Now fit them to your feet by moving the pins closer to your foot till the slipper is snug and comfortable. Don't try to pull the fabric tight or your slipper will be tight; only pull in enough material to make it snug. Sew the pieces together and sew a hem along the top opening to make it a little more durable. Finally turn it inside right and try them on. I hope you like your snuggly warm slipper boots as much as I like mine. Have fun!
