The Midnight Slippers require 1/3 of each a main (knit or woven), lining (knit or woven) and fleece. None of these fabrics require stretch. You will also need up to 1/3 yard of 1/4″ elastic. If you prefer or require non-slip soles for your slippers, you will need 1/8 yard of that per pair of slippers you are making.
