You can buy leather slipper bottoms in many yarn shops, or order online from places like Patternworks.

Gorgeous color! I'd love a pair of those for myself, slippery bottoms and all.

I've read that puff paint will do the job, but I feel a little more secure using gripper-Donnabottom fabric like you find on children's footed pajamas. I get mine at JoAnn Fabrics, or you can order it from www.knittingzone.com.

Thanks for great suggestions everyone! I'm going to run out to Hancock Fabrics and my Hobby Lobby to see what I can discover!

Kim - I made a pair of Fuzzy Feet from Knitty for my husband. To reduce the slippery factor, I put leather slipper bottoms and I can't speak highly enough of them. The slippers don't slip - sounds weird, doesn't it? - and the leather soles have worn like iron. I used the Fiber Trends soles.
