DIY Slipper Socks! ^_^

This is such a cute, yet quick craft...If you don't count drying time, that is.

Non-skid slipper socks!  I tend to run around barefoot like the hippie I am in the summer time, but in the winter, my feet and hands are *constantly* cold and I tend to wear socks pretty much all the time unless I'm sleeping.  Socks + hard floors = busted asses...or at least a few close calls every winter.  Not anymore!

For this, you'll need some socks, some slick fabric paint (it dries sticky), and a flip flop or a cardboard cutout of your traced foot.

Super lazy cat is totally optional.  Mine would NOT move.

Stretch your socks over your flip flops or cardboard cutouts.  Make sure the bottom of the sock is on the bottom of the shoe and that it is fitted to it more or less the same way it would be on your foot.  If you're doing a more foot-shaped design instead of a flat one, this will help with that.

Take the puff paint and draw on your design.  Put it somewhere the cat can't wake up and pounce it and leave it there for about 24 hours.

Always test your design by poking it with a toothpick because REALLY big, complex designs that require a lot of paint can take more than 24 hours to dry if you try to goop it all on in one sitting.

There you go!  Cute socks and they really do put the brakes on sliding around on hard floors.  I have lots of designs in mind, so I think I'll definitely be making a few more pair!

Let me know if you try it out!!

  1. OMG no way. This is too smart. Omg so wait...I won't almost die sliding into walls now? score!! and and I need a super lazy cat. The cuteness!

    1. Yep, no more near-death experiences. So glad I'm not the only one who does that. Also lazy cat only looks cute while asleep, other than that she hates everything and has chronic bitchface...but she's mine and I love her.

    2. I had a cat like that. She was, well, evil. Would attack if she decided she didn't like you that day. But man I loved her and miss that little cat demon. When she decided I was worthy of her time she was so sweet, rest of the time she would just look down upon us lowly humans lol
