I made my first pair of these slippers for myself almost 10 years ago and only wrote the sparest of notes. Even though I've been meaning to write up the pattern all these years I didn't want to have to reinvent the wheel. I finally decided it was time and every morning as I slip on my cozy slippers I'm glad I finally did.
A note from the pattern: "Felting results can vary widely depending on the yarn used. If yarn is substituted for this project, it may be wise to purchase enough yarn to make a third slipper as a test sample. Make one slipper and felt it following the instructions to determine if adjustments need to be made for a proper fit." Instructions are included for making such adjustments if needed.
