      cute for baby gifts: Martha Stewart Living, December 2011 Inspired by moccasins, each of these slip-ons is constructed from a single piece of felt, available in an array of colors. Tools and Materials Slipper Template 18-by-18-inch piece of 3-millimeter wool felt, filzfelt.com Chalk pen or pencil, clover-usa.com Thread, such as silk or heavy-duty polyester Sewing supplies Sewn Felt Slippers How-To Print slipper template. Enlarge or reduce template so it's the length of the sole of a flat shoe the recipient wears. Cut accordingly. Trace template outline onto felt with chalk pen. Cut out slipper and T-shaped slit, following template. Fold felt in half lengthwise, and stitch around the toe and open side, leaving the shorter heel edge open. Pinch heel closed, then sew from the top of the heel down. Leave 1/2 inch open for smaller sizes and 1 inch for larger sizes. Cut into the felt (1/2 inch for small sizes, 1 inch for large ones) to create a flap at the heel as shown, below center. A small flap of fabric should be left sticking out. Tuck tag in, then sew shut. Turn slipper inside out. Round off the tag with scissors, fold up, then sew to outside of slipper. Fold the cuff at the ankle, then sew cuff edge to slipper. (To accommodate a wider foot, trim a deeper curve along the top of the opening.) When sewing your second slipper, remember to flip felt so your T-shaped slit is on the opposite side.

    summer dress. There is a link to the non-pattern, but I like the finish of the top of this version better (as described in this link.) - about 3 yards of fabric, maybe a little more depending on the desired length...basically the length desired*2, but will have lots of leftovers unless I make the dress a pinch narrower than recommended.

    dress, apparently its easy to sew: Its just 4 rectangles. Measure shoulder to hem length, then girth at widest part (hips?) and divide by 4. Add seam allowance. Sew allowing for neckline, arm holes. No pattern needed. 1/2 hour, max!
