Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Washcloth slippers make a wonderful gift for those who do a lot of traveling, as they take up almost no space in a suitcase. In addition, they make great bazaar or flea market items. Check the stores for “bundles” of washcloths, which would be much cheaper to buy, or use old towels and cut to fit. Velour is also a very nice fabric for these pretty slippers. You could make a pair for every day of the week, just throw them into the washer.

Love these slippers!  I will be trying them if I ever finish the two lap blankets I am working on.  I can't seem to sit down long enough to get more than a row or two done before something happens and I am up again.

Question: These are adorable, but my daughter doesn't like the pointed toe thing. How much seam allowance did everyone use?

What a sweet thing to make. In my family a washcloth would not be long enough. I would have to get a towel and make them. Thank you for the PDF.

Thanks Marge, your directions actually clarify things better

OOPS...I reread the it... I was thinking only 1-1/2" opening...duh! So, I am now reading to fold the washcloth in half, sew up two of the open sides to within 1-1/2" of what will be the top edge of the slipper...fold the 1-1/2" over to make the casing for the elastic... gonna make some of these right now...Thanks for the pattern!

Wish I had known about these before Christmas! This would have been a great project to do with my grand-kids. Instead we'll make them for Mother's Day & Father's Day gifts. Thanks for sharing this. I love these simple little ideas.
