You can use felt or plastic bags to make the sole. If you want to make the sole out of plastic bags choose different types of unused plastic bags and cut them into smaller pieces.

Put layers of plastic bags one over another and than iron on top till they melt together into a solid piece. Try different types of plastic bags to find the best type.

Cut out the sole out of chosen material - plastic or felt.

Stitch the sole onto the bottom of each slipper.
