Faux fur slides
Trace the shoe

To start this incredible DIY, I laid my slide on a piece of paper and traced around it. 

Fit the pattern

I cut out the tracing and then made sure that it fit perfectly inside the shoe. 

Trace the top

Next, I needed to trace the top of the shoe. I took an old T-shirt and stuck it over the top of the shoe using a putty adhesive. I then traced a dotted line marking where I would need to cut the fabric to get the perfect piece. I made sure to mark on the pattern pieces, which shoes they were for. 

Trace onto the fabric
Cut the fabric

I then placed my two cut-out pieces on the back of my super-soft, fur fabric. I traced around the pieces. 

Glue inside the shoe
Glue on the fur fabric

Once I had all of the fur fabric cut out for both shoes, I could finally glue the fur on. I placed some glue along the inside of the shoe and used chopsticks to help me push the fabric in. 

Put glue on the top

With the furry sole of the shoe ready, I glued on the top piece of fur as well. 

Cheap fur slides

To get the perfect finish for these stylish slides, I measured the heel of the shoe for both its length and width.

Cut the strip of fabric

I then measured the scrap fur fabric to get the perfect piece for the heel. Once I had cut it out, I glued it onto the heel. The fur slide was looking amazing and I repeated the same steps for the other shoe. 

Try on the slides

Totally obsessed with these super fun fur slides!

Trace the top of the shoe
Make a pattern

For the second slide style, I once again marked a piece of scrap fabric while tracing the top of the shoe. 

Draw a line at the fold

I then traced the pattern onto my gorgeous, soft fur fabric. I made sure to mark a line under the fold of the top because I would be making an amazing two-toned shoe. 

Cut the black fabric
Cut out the fabric

For the top piece of the pattern, I cut beautiful black fur fabric to contrast the white.

Lastly, I had to cut the sole of the shoe from the same black fur fabric. 

Draw the right measurements

I measured the heel of the shoe and then drew the pattern for it on a piece of paper according to the measurements I had taken. 

Cut out the black strips

I then cut out the fur fabric to cover the heel of the shoes for the ultimate, professional finish. 

Glue down the sole

Finally, I could start gluing! I put glue on my slides and stuck the fur fabric on. I was so excited to try these bad boys on!

Trace onto paper
Trace a pattern

For the third and final pair of slides, I started by tracing a sandal slide onto a piece of paper. 

Get the right fit

Once I had made sure the first pattern piece fit inside the shoe, I moved on to tracing the top of the shoe and marking a scrap piece of fabric. 

Measure around the shoe

Next, I measured around the shoe so that I would later cut the perfect piece of fabric to cover the area. 

Cut out all the pieces
Cut the fur fabric

I traced all of my pattern pieces onto the fabric and then cut out the pieces I would need for my shoe.
