How to Make Fleece Slippers?

Point no. 1
Use pinking shears to cut polar fleece fabric into two pieces making a 12 inches square. Take one piece of this cutting in front of you and by using a pin.
Fold it about 3 inches from the left side and then do the same folding on the right side.
By using the sewing machine, you can stitch these foldings by taking the measurement 1 inch away from the edge of the foldings.
Now take the other piece and repeat the folding process.
Point no. 2
Match the folding edges and flaps of this slipper and fold it from the half.
Next, you need to bring the short ends In front and pin them together By sewing. repeat the process for the other pair.
Point no. 3
Turn sleepers upside down to sew the short end from one to the other casing stitch line through your hand.
Then, make the toe by gathering the thread together and tying the knot. Repeat it for the other shoe.
Point no. 4
Take the safety pin and tie it with the elastic, then pass it all over the slippers starting from the toe in accordance with the size of your feet.
Cover this elastic by using a ribbon bow. Repeat it for the other part.
Since fleece does not wear out even from the edges, there is no need to go for the finishing of the edges of your fleece slippers. This will be just a waste of time.
You need to be very careful when sewing the fleece together every time because you have to leave some space in it rather than closing the casing.
