Yesterday I taught a felted slipper class. In search of the perfect dimensions for creating a pattern - I learned a lot yesterday. It seems if you trace around your foot, then extend those dimensions 2" at the toe and heel, taper the dimension to 1 1/2" at the sides, you will be close. Would anyone be interested in a tutorial on making slippers? Here are a pair made by an adult student yesterday. This project was her very first felting project. Aren't they beautiful?

So she gets a fast ride down into the underworld and becomes Hades' woman. After ranting and raving over her plight, she actually kind of likes it there. She is loved, cherished, for the see her as their light. She shows them a way. She plants a garden, for every woman plants a garden. Here be two flowers that grew in Persephone's garden. She tended it well.
