How to Make Duck Feet Slippers

Updated April 17, 2017

Create fun, comfortable duck slippers to wear around the house or at your local watering hole. Include your family in this crafting project and make slipper sets for the adults and the kids. Whether you design your own original webbed feet or get real life inspiration from ducks, these slippers are sure to quack you up.

Trace the bottom of your shoe onto a piece of yellow felt. Cut out the shape and use it as a pattern to cut three more felt feet. Each shoe requires two felt feet.

Place one of the felt feet on another piece of yellow felt and trace only the heel part. It should resemble a solid u-shape. Cut out the heel and use it as a pattern to cut out another heel from the felt for the other foot.

Place a yellow felt foot on a piece of orange felt. On the orange felt, draw a webbed toe horseshoe pattern to fit the yellow felt foot. The horseshoe pattern (including the webbed part) needs to be about the same length and width of the yellow felt foot.

Cut out the orange horseshoe (webbed foot) pattern. Trace it on to another piece of orange felt and cut it out for the other foot.

Sew the heel pieces to the heels of two felt feet-- this is to provide some padding.

Take one felt foot with the added heel and one without and sew the two feet together along the perimeter. When you have a few inches left to sew, fill the shoe with a thin layer of batting for extra padding. Repeat with other pair of feet.

Sew or glue the outer edge of the orange horseshoe (webbed foot) pattern to the top of the felt shoe. Repeat with other shoe.

Cut two straps from the orange felt. The width should be one inch wide and the length should be the width of your felt foot.

Sew the straps to each shoe. You can also sew a button or another accent on the strap.
