Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers
posted FEBRUARY 15, 2011

I thought I’d kick off our month of boy with a tutorial for these extracute dragon slippers.
Elliot is really into monsters and dragons lately. When he asks me to tell him a story at
night, the usual request is for the kind I make up about “Prince Elliot and his friend Drew
the Dragon.” Nothing special, just a boy and a dragon and their silly adventures, but he
loves it. For awhile I’d even catch him occasionally talking to an imaginary Drew. *cute*

So I thought these little dragon (monster? lizard? dinosaur?) slippers would be perfect to
keep those little toes warm on our hardwood floors.
The little black button eyes are key to making them look like creatures:

made-by-rae. The good news is that the pattern for these slippers is made by tracing the wearer’s foot. and now Clementine has started wearing the first pair. I think you’ll find that other members of your family might want a pair as well. so this might actually work for any size boy (or girl!) This blog is proudly sponsored by http://www. they stay on pretty well with the elastic around the ankle. Even though they’re way too big for her. 9:01 PM Elliot got really excited about the first green pair I made him and wore them all over the house right away.Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14.com/2011/02/tutorial-by-rae-dragon-slippers/ Page 3 of 21 . They were a little snug so I made the blue pair a little bigger. So now I’ve got two kids walking around in these! Although I designed this slipper especially for Celebrate the Boy Month.

Step 5 (left): Measure around your seam line carefully with a measuring tape or string. You can see where I did this at the top of the toes.made-by-rae. Elliot’s slipper seam line measured 44 cm.com/2011/02/tutorial-by-rae-dragon-slippers/ Page 5 of 21 . so I recommend adding some extra for growing children. clearing both toes and adding a little length in the front if you want some room to grow. We will call this number “X” and we need it to make the upper pattern piece for the slipper (see next step).Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14. Step 4 (right): Now cut this shape out of paper (this will be your final pattern piece for the sole. Note: adding 3/8″ will produce an exact-fitting slipper. Step 6 (right): Now take half of the seam measurement and write that number down. we don’t want all those lines on the final pattern) and trace a line 1/4″ from the outside edge to mark your seam line.

Part 2: Assembling the Slippers You’ll need the following materials for your slippers: http://www.25″ by 1.75X. you may want to add 1/4″ around the slipper. I find it easiest to make a 1.75 to get the number you need] Note: You can also go ahead and round the corners adjacent to the diagonal line a little if you like. a line across the top that is 0. Step 8: Make a pattern piece for the tongue by drawing a shape like the one in the template provided. 9:01 PM Step 7 (above): Draw your pattern piece for the upper part of the slipper upper using the template provided below. for a baby for example.35X.Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14. The pattern piece will consist of a line across the bottom that is X long. Then draw a small line up from the bottom left that is 3/8″ or 1 cm tall. and connect it to the center line with a diagonal line. Although you will lose a little bit of fabric on the upper slipper seams. fleece stretches easily and I think you’ll find that the difference doesn’t really matter unless you are making a very small slipper. and a line down the center that is 0.7X. click to enlarge image A SEAM ALLOWANCE OF 1/4″ IS INCLUDED IN THIS PATTERN.made-by-rae. In this case.5″ inch rectangle and then trim two of the corners off with curved edges towards the center. a vertical line on the right side that is 0.

If you look carefully at the diagram above. just stitch down the center of http://www.com/2011/02/tutorial-by-rae-dragon-slippers/ Page 7 of 21 . Step 2 (right): Sew ric-rac along the front edge of a slipper upper piece. with the edge of the ricrac lined up with the front edge of the fleece. Try to stitch along the middle of the ricrac as close to the front edge of the ric-rac as possible without going off the ricrac at all. Decent alternatives might include: an old felted sweater. if that makes sense. or even two layers of fleece basted together) scraps of red fleece or felt for tongue jumbo ric-rac 1/2″ wide elastic + safety pin 4 small black buttons + needle and thread Also recommended: a stretch needle for your sewing machine Step 1 (left): For each slipper. a piece of thick fleece.made-by-rae. depending on whether you want a contrasting inside or not) sherpa-lined fleece for the sole (shown at right.Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14. The instructions here will be for ONE slipper. If that doesn’t make sense to you. cut 8 upper pieces. you’ll also see that I curved the front edge of the slipper when I cut the pieces out. two tongue pieces and one sole. Hint: Cut the fleece for the upper parts of the slippers with the stretchiest direction of the fleece running parallel to the bottom of the foot. in one or two colors. So for each pair of slippers. you’ll need to cut out four upper pieces. and two soles. so you’ll have to repeat each step to get a pair. four tongue pieces. 9:01 PM stretchy fleece for the slipper upper (shown at top. available in the home dec section at most craft sewing superstores.

9:01 PM the ric-rac. I usually try to line up the stitching with valleys in the ric rac.com/2011/02/tutorial-by-rae-dragon-slippers/ Page 8 of 21 . and I backstitch before and after the ric rac http://www. Also note: I did sew the tongue to the top part of the slipper at this point when I made the green slippers. Sew together around the top edge with a 1/4″ seam. Step 4 (right): Sew the back side of the slipper. Step 5 (left): Turn lining inside out and place outside of slipper over it (so their right sides are facing). and the next about 3/4″ above that. Step 7 (left): Sew two lines around the outside of the slipper for the elastic casing. and stitch along your ric rac stitch line to sew together with a 1/4″ seam.made-by-rae. but I’d recommend waiting until Step 11 instead. one roughly halfway up the slipper. repeat steps 3 and 4 for the lining of the slipper. Step 6 (right): Turn both right side out.Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14. Step 3 (left): Pin another slipper upper to the one you just stitched the ric-rac to. Now push the lining back inside slipper (not shown) Steps 7-9 are optional but HIGHLY recommended for babies/toddlers.

Step 11 (right): Attach tongue to the center front of the outside of the sole by sewing across the short side of the tongue. which can flatten it. (right) Remember to leave a hole in the lower line of stitching to allow for the elastic to go in. adjust elastic length if necessary. I find I actually need about an inch less than this. Pin ends and try on your child if possible. minus the tongue. Step 9 (right): Thread elastic through casing. If it’s a little bit http://www. Step 10 (left): Sew two of the tongue pieces together with a 1/4″ seam along the curved edges. Now turn it inside out (not shown). but it’s always good to have a little extra. Step 8 (left): Cut elastic roughly the length of the slipper and put a safety pin at the end.made-by-rae. (left) The upper part of your slipper should now look something like this photo. then zigzag stitch back and forth through both layers of elastic to secure.com/2011/02/tutorial-by-rae-dragon-slippers/ Page 9 of 21 . 9:01 PM instead of sewing over it. Step 11 (right): Take a look at the front center seam of your slipper.Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14.

Pin around entire slipper. but they get tighter at the ankle when folded over though. Step 14 (right): Zigzag stitch along seam allowance to finish inner edge. 9:01 PM pointy. carefully lining up all three edges as you pin.made-by-rae. I did this with the blue slippers (but not the green ones because I had curved their pieces a little more when I cut them out) and found it helps make a nicer looking slipper. trim it slightly at the center seam so that it’s a more curved. You may need to stretch the fleece a little to fit around the sole. You can see that the blue slippers don’t have the elastic. Step 13 (right above and left below): Sew together using a stretch needle and a 1/4″ seam allowance.Tutorial by Rae: Dragon Slippers 7/31/14. Step 12 (left): Pin center front and center back of slipper to sole with outsides facing (the inside of the sole and the inside of the upper part of the slipper should be facing out). Step 15 (above): Turn slipper right-side out. that’s just fine. Full disclosure: they don’t stay on as well as the green ones! http://www. This step is optional but I find it makes it easier to sew the upper part of the slipper to the sole.com/2011/02/tutorial-by-rae-dragon-slippers/ Page 10 of 21 .
