Felted slippers - creating a perfect pattern

A first felting project
 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?
