Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the time for neither the glue to dry nor the washing and drying of the slippers near the end of this project.
  • 2
    If your slippers aren’'t White, start by removing the existing color in your slippers. Fill a stainless steel pot full of water and stir in one package of color remover.
  • 3
    Once the pot simmers, throw your slippers in and stir, stir, stir. After approximately 30 minutes your slippers will be an Off White or Cream color, ready to dye whatever new color you like.
  • 4
    To add initials, use glue. Draw the first initial on the right shoe and the second initial on the left shoe. Let the glue dry overnight.
  • 5
    Apply painter's tape around the sole of the shoes and stuff newspaper inside the shoes so they won't get dye on them. Place the shoes on old newspaper.
  • 6
    Shake Rit Dye bottle before using. Mix 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup Petal Pink dye with hot water in a spray bottle. Test color by spraying on a paper towel. If too light, add more dye. Too dark, add more water.
  • 7
    Spray dye thoroughly over each slipper. Spray generously as the fluff of the slippers needs to be completely saturated
  • 8
    Rinse in the sink until the water runs clear and then pop in the washing machine and dryer with an old towel.
