I make a mean pair of slippers. I have been making them for almost 3 years.  There seems to be one problem with them.  I am using regular jiffy grip for the soles ( the kind you get at Joanns...) and it seems to be wearing out well before the rest of the slipper.  any ideas on something better I could use for the non skid? Thanks!

Well, I have NO idea of the durability of this, but what I use to keep the inside door mats from moving is rubber shelf liner. It would certainly be easy to cut and sew, and it certainly is non-skid...It has lasted over a year under our mat; it's just a question of how it would do with constant bending and such...

there's also some stuff that comes in a roll like tape that is meant to hold carpets in place...don't remember what it was called offhand but i'll ponder it.

I once read somewhere you can use liquid latex. I'm getting ready to try that soon. I'll let ya'll know how it works.

Puff paint plain and simple.

I would love to do a personal swap!

I have used puff paint, and "goop" you can get goop in Canada and the u.s. (not sure of elsewhere)

I'm planning on making some slippers for my grandma and they need to be non-slip. I think the puff paint will be the way to go!
