I love the Fiber Trends Slippers.  I have made a pair for my hubby with Lambs Pride & I also made a pair for my nephew in OU colors in Lambs Pride.  My hubby & nephew love them.

Hi Sherry, I had a great time making them and I think it will be the holiday present of choice next December (last year it was mostly scarves, see below).  I did end up buying the suede pathes for the bottoms because Grayson told me that wearing his slippers was like ice skating int he house.  Did you put anything on the bottoms of your slippers?  I'm especially interested to hear from anyone who put flexible fabric glue on the bottoms.

I didn't end up using the suede soles even though most of my downstairs is wood flooring.  Hubby didn't want them.  I made some felted slippers also from a different Fiber Trends Pattern & I didn't use them either. 

As far as the fabric glue, I have used this "aka puff paint"  and I used them on the bottoms of my 3 yr olds slipers.  I made her the Mary Jane Ballerina felted slippers from Fiber Trends.  I just put dots of paint all over it.  It helped the slipping some but is still a little slippery, not too bad though.  I personally would recommend the suede soles for young children (who are always running around & falling) & for older people that may be more prone to falls.  I tend to wear mine alot around the house but you won't catch me runing around.  They are more slippery on tile floors than the wod floors though.
