The hardest part of this project was drawing a template for the slipper and foot, but after spending an hour, or two, staring and sketching feet I finally came up with one that’s not too bad.
- Foot and slipper template
- beige and pink felt
- pink embroidery thread
- fabric glue
Using the template I began by cutting out two feet from the beige felt and two slippers from the pink. NOTE: This template is nothing special, as if you couldn’t already tell, but it works! Just right click the image, save it or copy it, and then paste it into a doc. You can resize/print it from there.
I sandwiched everything together and began sewing a basic blanket stitch around the outside of the foot. Across the top of the slipper I used a running stitch.
With the slipper secure on the foot, I opened up the beige felt, and added a bit of fabric glue along with the ribbon-folded over.
After about a day of dry time I cleaned up the edges and gave it a trim so that it all lined up.
Considering how easy this ornament turned out I think I might come up with at least one more felt design before the month’s over!
