Step 1

Purchase several large sheets of green felt at your local craft or fabric store. Trace your most comfortable footwear onto two pieces of white paper to use as a pattern for the soles of your Peter Pan shoes. Cut out the traced shoes and pin them to your felt. Trim the shoe soles from the felt.

Draw a chunky letter U onto a large piece of white paper. Make the U 2 inches longer than your shoe shapes and approximately 2 inches wide all of the way around. Cut out the U and pin it to a piece of green felt. Trim the U from the felt. Repeat for the other Peter Pan shoe.
