For a cushier sole, my proof reader Patricia from Life’s A Stitch in Sault Ste. Marie added an extra piece of fleece to the soles.  She explains, “I traced the sole pattern twice onto the fleece and cut the pieces 1/2” smaller all the way around. I then centered these smaller soles onto the main fleece soles and basted them in place. The rest I stitched as per your directions.  Our fusible fleece is not as soft and thick as our non fusible (thermolam) so I used that – hence the basting. No extra bulk in the seams but an extra layer of cushiness on the bottom.”

Sounds very comfy Patricia, thanks once again for a great tip.
