DIY No slip socks

With being a fairly new parents, we are still learning new things everyday.  Now that our son is walking and running that comes with a lot of falls, boo boos and many get better kisses.  Well it finally occurred to me that the reason to all of his falls could simply be his socks.   Our home is primarily hard wood, tile and carpet in the bedrooms.  While I was at the store browsing the toddler and baby section, I happened to notice that you can purchase socks with writings on the bottom that act as a gripper to help prevent them from falling.  Well of course the socks I have been purchasing do not have this writing.  So instead of tossing all of these socks I decided to purchase some puffer paint and write on the bottoms and see if it helps with the slipping and falling.  Well it worked!!  We still have a few falls but not nearly as many falls as we use to get.


You can design the socks any way want.  I kept mine simple with dots, x’s and lines.

After a few washing’s my paint started to crack slightly.  The smaller and less detailed I kept the design the better it held up!

  1. I have been thinking of sewing up some warm house socks and was wondering how to add those little no-slip dots to the bottom. This is a clever idea! :) Thanks!

  2. What a great idea! I never would have thought to do this! We are going to be visiting family for Christmas and both of our parents’ homes have hardwood floor. Our son will probably be learning to walk at that time so this will be so helpful!
