I made these slippers, and decided to make a pair for my daughter, but I want to make them a little different, where they look more like ballet slippers. The sides area lot lower, and I have increased my stitches to form the heel. The original pattern said to just pinch the two sides of the heel together and slip stitch them together, but I would like to make a more natural looking heel, thats rounded at the bottom instead of pointed.

Any suggestions on how to do this? I hope I am making sense.

TIA

Not familiar with this particular pattern but in general when I make slippers I make the soles and tops separately and then join top to bottom. The tops are one piece without a back seam.
