You Will Need
Pin and tack (baste) each wadding upper between a pair of fabric uppers with the right sides facing out.
Open out one folded edge of bias binding and pin to the toe and inner edges with right sides facing and matching the raw edges. Cut the toe binding level with the side edges and cut across the inner edge bindings level with tips of the inner edges. Stitch along the foldlines. Follow the Finishing Binding technique on page 30 to slipstitch the binding along the seam on the underside of the uppers. Trim the ends of the bindings level with the side edges.
Press each iron-on ultra-heavy interfacing insole to a pelmet interfacing insole to fuse the layers together. Tack the wadding soles to the wrong side of the patterned
fabric soles. Place the insoles centrally on the wrong side of the calico soles, place the wadded fabric soles right side up on top. Pin and tack the layers together taking a 6 mm (. in) seam allowance, to enclose the insoles.
With right sides face up, pin and tack the side edges of the uppers to the soles between the dots. Bind the raw edges.
