I've fallen in love with the slippers for women, Simplicity 2278. I'm making my second pair and need a little input from you all. I've been using the gripper stuff you can get at Joann's, that comes on a bolt. It's costs more than I would like to pay(even with a coupon) and only comes in a width of about 15 inches. A yard doesn't go far, if making multiple shoes. I was at Wal-mart this morning and found some shelf liner called "Duck". One side is smooth the other has a bumpy little texture. I picked up a small roll of it for less than $2.00. I'm wondering if this would work for the sole of my slippers. It claims to be machine washable. What do you think?

I have successfully used the thin pad that you put under a tablecloth for slipper bottoms.

JEF, thank so much. I've never used a table cloth pad before. The one my mother used was a type of pressed cotton. Is that the type you are speaking of? Or is it a rubbery type stuff? Can you find them at Wal-mart?

The shelf liner works great. I sew it to the bottoms of my grandkids fleece socks. I cut out shapes and sew them on on the bottoms.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

It's sort of rubbery and has little circles on it. Sorry I can't describe it better that that. I have no idea where or when I bought it ... Actually just used it up the other day making slippers (well, cutting them out) for my DH and my Dad.
