1. First, cut the patterns from one of the felt pieces. Put an X mark at the center of each pattern fabric marker. Then Cut two pieces of the 1-inch length of elastic and set it aside. Use the x mark and pin the sole piece and the upper piece together and lay down the sole to make it flat and then wrap the right side of the upper piece to the front side to make a perfect front curve.
2. Carefully wrap the left side of the upper piece to the front side overlapping the left side for a perfect front curve and then pin the sole, the left and the right side layers together at the front of the sole. For the opposite shoe, wrap the left side first and then the right and pin them together in the same steps as the right shoe. Pin the upper section from the front and the sideways of the sole to make it flat.
3. Face one of the shoes forward. Use your index finger to flatten the back part of the shoe like the picture above and start hand sewing it without tying a knot in the thread. Start at the x mark by pulling the needle from of the sole section through the upper section with a ¼ inch from the edge and leave a 4 -inch tail then lay the tail over the working thread and arrange it to point towards the right.
4. Start stitching ¼ inch from the edge and ¼ inch to the right of the first stitch towards the upper piece. Make sure that the needle is on the top of the thread coming from the previous stitch by pulling the needle out through the sole Continue stitching using the same steps but be sure that you are sewing through the sole section to the upper section When you reached stitching to where you started, tie a knot with the tail and working thread.
5. Pull the working yarn a few inches from the seam. Cut the excess thread right at its exit point. Repeat steps for the opposite pair.On the right shoe, sew the left side of one of the elastic pieces from the left to the upper section with a double cross stitch again. Try pulling apart the left and right sides lightly to help the shoe stand up. For the left shoe, repeat the steps but you will start sewing from right to left then you’re done!
