Learn how to make slippers for kids with a free PDF sewing pattern. This beginner sewing project is great for using up fleece fabric scraps!

My kids always complain about cold feet, and when I tell them to put socks on they won’t. They see me wearing my slippers and begged to have their own slippers. These fleece slippers are so warm and cozy since it’s lined making your feet covered by two layers of fabric!

These slippers look so nice since they are lined and all the raw edges are enclosed. This sewing pattern is for children’s feet approximately shoe sizes 10 & 11, 12 & 13, 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and 5. You could make a bunch of slippers for gifts since they only use a little bit of fabric.

What fabric should I use to make slippers for kids?

This slipper pattern was designed to work with a stable knit fabric like polar fleece or sweatshirt fleece. These types of fabrics are warm and cozy, but they are easy to find and easy to sew. They are also comfortable to wear because there is just a little bit of stretch.

There are lots of different kinds of polar fleece like sherpa fleece, anti-pill fleece, and velour fleece so you can make some pretty cool slippers! Combine two different kinds of fleece for a unique look.

Should I prewash my fabric?

Yes, it’s important to prewash and dry the fabric so that when it gets washed after it’s finished it won’t shrink or bleed colors.

What is a PDF sewing pattern?

A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.

I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!

How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?

Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size.
