Slippers, slippers everywhere!

Those tiny baby slippers I made were so darn cute I didn't want my boys to feel left out since I've been making loads of mommy & baby stuff lately. The thing is, both my guys have much, much bigger feet, so I decided to blow up the pattern to make some for them. The first enlarged pair turned out what I call "smurf" style meaning they are way oval looking & a bit cartoony. Declan loved them anyway and I was thrilled to use some of my leftover French vocab fabric (educational & fun!).

I used some scrap denim I had to make the bottoms be able to handle more wear & tear.

I made my own slipper pattern to accommodate bigger kid feet that is more slimmed down , so Ethan's pair turned out a little more normal and I used some scraps left over from the pyjamas I made a while back, so he has a complete nighttime ensemble:

The best part is they both want to wear them all the time and I had loads of scrap fabric left from previous projects, so our slipper supply will be never ending!


  1. Wow! I just discovered this post about you making your kids slippers. I had seen a tutorial somewhere else and it just looked way too complicated for me. I love the simple look of yours! And I love your idea of using denim on the bottom and scraps. Would you mind sharing the pattern you used?

  2. Just a while ago I made up some baby booties (slippers) While making them I wondered it I could make them bigger. Thanks for showing this. As a new sewer it is nice to see your "thoughts" actually made. Thanks for all your patterns, tutorials, etc. You make it seem easy.

    1. Thanks so much Kathi - it's great to hear that. I've learned a lot over the past 5 years I've been sewing so I'm glad to share my experiences to help others too:) I've also got posts for making slip-on slippers and slipper socks that you'd probably like too. You can find them here: and


Getting your comments brightens my day. I'd love if you left one:)
