These slippers have a vinyl sole which makes them a little more hardwearing than with a knitted sole. The elastic ruching around the edge allows for a secure but adjustable fit.

Also needed:
22cm x 28cm piece of vinyl, suede or leather
Hole punch to make 0.15cm circular holes
1 metre (1 yard) Ruffle Elastic 1.59cm wide
