How to Add a Felt Sole to Your Crocheted Slippers

Sometimes walking on crocheted fabric is not very comfortable, especially crocheted cotton. However, this can easily be fixed by adding a simple, felt insole…it’s pretty, too!

Lets begin

How to Add a Felt Sole to Your Crocheted Slippers:

Gather Supplies

You’ll need:

  • a pair of slippers
  • scissors
  • a 12×12 piece of wool felt
  • high temp hot glue
  • a marker (not pictured).

Cut out insoles

Lay your slippers on top of your piece of felt, mark out your soles…. and cut!

  • Cut on the inside of your marks to make sure that your insole will be small enough to fit inside your slipper.
  • Once you have them cut, insert them into slipper to check for a good fit.
  • Trim insoles as needed.


Turn your slippers inside-out and hot glue your insoles into the bottom of your crocheted slippers.

  • Make sure the glue gun is set on high and apply hot glue liberally.
  • When the insole is completely glued down, run some extra glue around the edges.

That’s it!

This is a simple finishing touch you can add to give your crocheted slippers a more comfortable and professional look.
