Make sure to cut off any extra pieces of fabric from the bottom of the shoe so that these new and improved slides will be nothing but comfortable. 

Cover the top

5. Cover the top in faux fur

To cover the top of your slides, measure a piece of material, wrong side facing, over the top. Cut off the extra fabric on the ends but make sure there is enough fabric on all sides to be tucked under the top of the shoe. This will ensure maximum comfort and security for your fabric! 

Stick underneath

Stick the fabric to the top of the slides and then make sure to also stick the extra fabric underneath the top of the slide!

Fold over the fabric

The extra fabric on the sides can be folded over once and stuck down to the side of the shoe.

    Julie Anne why not include the toes with the wrap around for the winter. It doesn't look to be so difficult. You are a genius with STYLE. Lovely.

    Maybe I missed it, but do you get a pair of slides a size larger so your foot fits in with all the fuzz?
