Reusing your towels

When our towel is tore, we often throw it away. In fact it can also  be used. For example you can make bedroom slippers.  If you want to know, you can  read about below:

Choose a Towel
Choose a thinner towel as it would be easier to work with. You can use a white towel, or any other colour you want your slippers to be.

Draw your Template
On a piece of paper, trace the outline of your foot by going around it with a pen. The area around toes should be bigger and rounded. This is your template. Make sure to smoothen out the rough edges so that you have a perfect foot-like shape. You can now transfer this on to your towel. Flip the template over for the other foot.

Cut out your design
You can now cut out your design. Make sure to cut an inch away from the design so that you have enough space for stitches. You need four cut-outs, two for each foot. If you are good with the scissors, you may cut them both at once, but if you are new to sewing, cut piece-by-piece to avoid mistakes. You will also need two oval-shaped pieces to cover the top of your foot. The oval must be as long as the cut-out, and wide enough to go over your foot with an inch of excess on both sides.

Cut Foam Padding
Next, transfer the same template onto a piece of thin foam padding. Make sure that your foam padding is less than half an inch thick or it will be very hard to work with. Cut out the template for both feet. It would be easier to sew later on if you could make the foam padding design slightly smaller than the one on the towel cut-outs, approximately 0.5 cm in.

Next, fold the excess edges of the towel cut-outs neatly and sandwich the foam padding cut-out in between. Make sure that you have the right combination for each foot. Also, remember to insert the top piece as well or the slipper will not be able to hold your foot. To do so, fold over the oval piece in to two and tuck it in between the sandwich pieces. Sew around the edges, approximately 0.5 cm in. It would be easier to start from the front of the foot as there is an extra piece there.

If youn do this, you will find it is very easy. So trying it quickly.
