Jiffy Grip Fabric from Staple Sewing Aids Corp
Jiffy Grip is the most commonly recognized fabric for soles of footy pajamas and slipper soles. The flannel backed fabric is coated with no-slip dots which help prevent skidding of slippery floors. The base fabric is a slightly off white color with white dots. I have seen this fabric last an entire season of slipper wearing before it started to disintegrate. The plain dots allow you to change the direction you are cutting out pieces on the grain lines without effecting the finished appearance.

Of the slipper sole fabrics shown in this article, this fabric is the thickest and firmest of the three. The footprints of no-slip coating provides a very slip-resistant surface. I strongly recommend this no-slip fabric for anyone who is handicapped or at risk for falling. The basic fabric is an cream color, with the printed footprints,being available in white, gray,navy,purple,royal,forest and red. The footprints do all face one directions so changing the direction that you cut out different... sizes will effect the direction of the footprints.

Dritz Anti-Skid Gripper Fabric
This fabric is very similar to the most commonly found non-skid fabric, although the fabric does seem a bit heavier than the commonly known brand. It is a flannel backed fabric coated with no-skid white dots. This version of no-slip fabric is white with white dots. It does seem to be a bit heavier fabric but above all it is definitely a comparable, quality product. The dot pattern does allow for more "wiggle room" when fitting various size slipper bottoms on the piece of Gripper Fabric... than the foot print pattern.
Note: As of 11/08/10 this product is not listed on line except for the company's website. I did find the product at a relatively local Joann's Fabric and Crafts.
