That's good. Do you have any of these patterns in smaller sizes for kids? Would like to do some for the grandkids & my niece.

Hi Ladies- I have beeb surfing the net and if you search for children's felted slippers you will likely find them.

However, I would think it might be an idea to do one of the patterns above to learn the technique- (and then go from there.) I had a ball after the first felting class and have made more hats and other things.

I really am looking forward to joining in this class. Designer

All of you are in! I will delete your posts shortly.

Meanwhile I have started my socks! here is a picture -- I am doing the striped pattern but am increasing the ankle length to 3 inches like the other pattern. I agree with Chickkie they are very large so they should felt beautifully. I am using black and red Reynolds lite lopi wool, which was a gift from a friend and I am hoping to make some for all my family members for Christmas. First pair is for me as I always have cold feet from October on!

here is a picture of my start!

question I've never knitted socks before & I'm confused as to how these 2 pair will fit my foot size. I've understood that the Fuzzy Feet slipper are "gigantic" pre-felting, & I will fit to my size while felting them? And the Fireside Footies are knit to size while knitting them? Do I cast on the amount of stitches per pattern instructions for both? I wear size 9.
Both pairs of slippers are gigantic and then shrunk to fit. When you felt the slippers you have to watch them carefully and get them out of the washing machine when you think they will fit. I put a plastic bag on my foot and put the wet slipper over the bag to ensure proper fit. If it is too big, felt it some more. If it is too small... you have made a gift!

Perhaps these patterns aren't going to work for me because my foot measures 10" BEFORE felting.
