Wash and dry the slippers. You may use a washing machine for this if your slippers are felted or if you used a machine-washable yarn for your project. You can make anti slip soles for slippers made with handwash-only yarns, but it will not work as well. If that is the kind of slippers you have, wash them by hand and hang or lay them flat to dry.
Paint a design onto the sole of the slippers using fabric puffy paint. You can make simple squiggly lines or dots for a basic look, or personalise it by making hearts, flowers, stars or other shapes. Allow the puff paint to dry completely.
Wash the slippers again, according to the directions on the puff paint packaging. This will probably involve washing in cold water and drying on low heat. Now the slippers are ready to give and ready to wear, anti slip soles and all.
