Check Out How 8 Ways To Make Crocheted Slippers Non-Slip
This tutorial is dedicated on how to Make Crocheted Slippers Non-Slip. We have seen some fabulous patterns for slippers and socks, but some of you have also raised concerns on the fact that they can be slippy and prone to accidents.
So what can we do to these type of projects to make them safe for every one who wears them?
This is even more important if your slippers are for elderly individuals or very young children. We want to avoid any slips and falls!
It’s time to gather up all the non-slip ideas and put them to the test.
Here are 8 methods you can try, along with some of the pros and cons.
This method works well. Most people have hot glue on hand, so it’s an easy go-to method.
It’s inexpensive, grips without tripping, and there is no drying time. Unfortunately, it may be a little uncomfortable to walk on and also have to be reapplied over time.
Puffy paint is another option that is easy and inexpensive. It gives you a grip without tripping, and it’s soft to walk on. It will take several hours to dry however, and will need frequent reapplying.
This one may work too well because the gripping power is intense! It forms a waterproof sole to your slippers and is very grippy. The downside is, it can be messy to apply, and may be a tripping hazard if it’s too grippy.
Suggested by one of our followers as seen in a pattern. I haven’t used this one personally but assume it must be similar to Silicone Caulk.
Felt by itself does not make the slippers non-slip, but it does add a professional touch to your slippers and is comfortable to wear. You must combine the felt with another method, which in the overall bigger scheme of things, means it takes more working time than others.
Non-Skid Shelf Liner
Shelf liner is surprisingly good at gripping. Just sew 2x ovals onto the bottom of your slippers.
Not only is it cheap to buy, but it can be removed easily and replaced. It also adds another layer, which means added comfort. The downside is that there is
additional sewing and special supplies are needed.
This is an air-dry, specialty rubber coating, which is non-slip, flexible and durable. It’s also easy to apply.
If you really want to make a professional looking job of making your slippers non slip, this has to be the answer. Especially great if you are gifting or selling at a craft fair.
Just purchase a sheet of suede and cut out 2x oval pieces, for the bottom of each. Punch small holes around the suede edge and sew into place.
Please note: You will need a leather hole punch for the holes.
