Member Exclusive Class: Snow Day Slippers

Premium Member Access Only

Join Brenda K.B. Anderson for a LIVE sewing workshop! Make these snuggly-warm slippers for everyone on your list this holiday season! Soft and cozy, these slippers are like a big hug for your feet. Choose from a wide variety of fabrics to personalize this project for each lucky recipient: fleece, faux fur, sherpa, wool suiting, re-purposed felted sweaters. The list goes on! These slippers can be made in size child through adult and use materials that can be easily found at a local fabric/craft store.

In this class, you will learn how to construct these slippers using the pattern provided. Brenda will talk about different materials and how they affect the look and feel of the finished piece. She will guide you through the construction process, with tips on how to work with tricky fabrics such as faux fur, striped and other directional fabrics.

    Sometimes on projects like that I will prewash the fabrics to ensure no shrinkage when giving a gift to family not familiar with cold water wash.

    It was a challenge but I made 11 pair and they look very good. I tried the first pair without watching the video and it turned out good. I tried to make a second pair and it was too much. Then I watched the videos and it helped tremendously. I did extend the edge of the sole where the dense foam was attached. Now I need to make a pair for myself. :^) Thank you!

    I wonder if anyone beta tested these slippers besides the instructor. It's insanely difficult to sew consistent 1/4" seems when working with really thick or furry fabric--you just can't control a consistent distance with the slippage and furriness. Sewing polar fleece to sherpa or fake fur requires dealing with the length of the pile on the fur--nearly impossible with 1/4" seams. This pattern needs to be redrafted with 1/2" or 5/8" seems or it will be REALLY hard for a beginner. I realize the fit isn't critical, but it really requires checking and often re-sewing both sides of any seam. Also, closing up the back seam for turning in a fur fabric is extremely difficult because you can hardly locate the backing fabric. And, makers should be aware that the stitching used on to attach the foam to the sole will show--and with that thickness, few machines will produce a uniform stitch (and I have a far better machine than the instructor was using). This is NOT, in my opinion, a beginner pattern (and I've been sewing for over 40 years).

    This was a great class. I went to Joann's today and bought my materials and I am planning to make a pair for a christmas gift. They look so soft and comfy.

    Brenda does an absolutely amazing job of making the instructions clear and concise. This was so much fun and I will be making a couple pairs for a quick Christmas gift this year. Thanks so much!
