I totally want to try one now! :D Maybe I'll start small since I lose interest easily! I'll try a smaller slipper, say for my 2 yr old!

Your son looks so funny holding up the before slipper! He looks like he's holding up "Big Foot's" slipper! I love the before and after photos. It's fun to see the contrast when it shrinks!

Thanks for sharing! It looks awesome!

:rofling: My DS isn't very happy about modeling -- I made him pause the playstation -- oh horror of horrors -- to help me out!! Thanks for the compliments :D It was a great first felting project, and I learned some new techniques while trying them out. A great thing about doing these slippers is that so many knitting help gurus are around to answer questions! The best advice I got was to trust the pattern. There were a few parts that I just didn't understand from reading the pattern, but they made perfect sense as you were knitting them

:XX:
