Don’t Slip on Your Crocheted Slippers

Ideas for Non-Slip Slippers

Non-Slip Ideas

Don’t you just love how a cozy pair of crocheted slipper make you feel?  I love to come home after work in the winter, put on something comfy, which always includes my slippers to keep my toes warm.  But one must be careful on certain flooring, such and hardwood and tile, as those fibers can definitely get slippery.

I haven’t experimented personally yet with any of these products, but I will be soon.  I found a few items that I will definitely be giving a try to see which work best.  They all look pretty simple and are generally easy to find items.

If you have personal experience with these or any other items to make your slippers non-slip, please share your story in the comments below.  I’d love to hear what works best from our own Crochet Crowders.

    I used the fabric identical to footed pajamas, slipper gripper and that is what I will use on my crocheted slippers, as I did many years ago when I repaired my sons footed pajamas

    i use puffy paint and it works great and is not very expensive.

    The slipper gripper works well but isn’t the prettiest on a finished project. For my 3 yo I wasn’t worried about how pretty the bottom of her slippers looked I just didn’t want her to fall and this does the trick!

    I made slippers for Christmas presentS last year and I just used fabric paint to add a few non-slip squiggles to the bottom of the slippers. It’s been almost a year and no one has slipped or fallen! Just make sure the paint dries completely before wrapping.
