2. Place strap approximately 1 - 1 ½ inches from heel seam and sew in place. Put button on opposite side of slipper approximately 1 - 1 ½ inches from heel seam. REMEMBER: the straps are sewn onto the inside of the slipper, and the buttons are sewn onto the outside of the slipper. Each slipper will be a mirror of the other.

B. If you choose larger or smaller buttons, adjust your strap loop size making the last 6 stitches of the starting loop chain larger or smaller accordingly.
