Pattern info specifically to this pattern:
Please pay attention to the type of yarn you are using. T-shirt yarn is usually from the fabric industry and will therefore way in thickness and stretch. If you feel that your yarn is very thin, I recommend making the slippers in a bigger size. All size are approx. sizes. There is no way of knowing exactly what size your slipper will be before you have finished a sole. I highly recommend making one sole and checking against the intended wearer before finishing the slippers.
If you need any clarification on the terms I use you can see them below.
Yarn: 1 spool of t-shirt yarn
Optional: 2 smaller faux fur pompoms
Make 4 (2 for each slipper).
Start by chaining 16/17/18/19
1. In second ch from the hook make 1 sc in 7/8/9/10, 1 hdc, 1 dc in 6 sts, 6dc in the last ch, now working on the other side of the chain. 1 dc in 6 sts, 1 hdc, 1 sc in 6/7/8/9 sts, 2sc in last ch, sl st into the first st, ch 2
2. 2dc in the same st as sl st, 1 dc in 13/14/15/16 sts, 2dc in 6 sts, 1 dc in 13/14/15/16 sts, 2dc in the next st, 3dc in the last st, finish with a false stitch – see how to make a false stitch.
When all four soles are done place them two and two wrong sides together. Find your center st at the back of the soles and make a sl st through both soles all the way round. Finish with a false st and secure your ends. The side with the sl sts will be the top of your slipper.
Before chaining leave a piece of yarn long enough to use when sewing the top to the soles, 50 cm is more the enough.
1. In second ch from hook make 1 sc in each st (11/12/12/13) ch 1, turn
2-7. 1 sc in each st (11/12/12/13) ch 1, turn
8. 1 sc in each st (11/12/12/13)
Cut your yarn with enough left to sew the top to the sole.
If you have chosen to use pompoms, I recommend sewing them in the center of the top part before you sew the slipper together.
Sew the top piece on your sole according to the pictures below.

From any leftover yarn you can make makeup pads
Instead of making regular single crochets you make knit stitches (a single crochet but made through the center of the single crochet from the previous round) See pictures below.
Start by making a magic ring.
1. Ch 1, 6 sc in mr, pull the ring closed and sl st in to your first st, ch 1
2. 2sc in each st, sl st into first st, ch 1
3. *1 sc, 2sc in nest st* x6 sl st into first st, ch 10, cut your yarn and sew your chain on the opposite side.
