Your lining (we used a piece of leather) will now be attached to the indicated area. Use an adhesive spray to keep lining in place. This will be the "sole" of the slipper.

Step 25 - CONSTRUCTION -

Lay out the panels right and left. With a zigzag stitch on your sewing machine join the heel and toe sections for the sole. Also join the two panels for the right TOE and the 2 panels for the left TOE.

Step 26:

Mark the center of the sole front panels of each slipper.

Step 27:

Always start in the center front. With a zigzag stitch on your sewing machine close the seam from the center front to the one side.

Step 28:

This is what your slipper looks like now.
