Cozy Toes

The winter 2020 issue of Creative Machine Embroidery is out and inside (and on the cover) is my latest project: these festive embroidered slippers!

While the idea of making a pair of slippers seems daunting, I can assure you this pattern is fairly simple and the results are cozy. This project would make great gifts (I was thinking of doing these for adults with matching pajamas), but also make for the perfect “selfish sew” as they are great for keeping your tootsies warm during the winter months. This was a fun little project to work on – I can definitely see making more!

For those of you who want to recreate this look, I picked up the buffalo plaid fabric from Joann’s in the home decor section of the store (the sherpa lining came from Joann’s as well). This material sewed up well and took the embroidery designs perfectly, but be sure to use a sharp needle while embroidering as it tends to want to “snag” otherwise.

Don’t have an embroidery machine? No problem, you can still pick up the sewing pattern here.

    These slippers are talking to me! I’m going to give them a try. Any advice on sizing? Do they run true to your shoe size?

      I normally wear an 8.5 in shoes. This pattern doesn’t have half sizes, so I wound up making a 9. It’s pretty close, but I could have gone up to a 10 and I think it would have been perfect (plus it gives you room for error if you take too wide of a seam allowance).
