I finished (YAY!) some felted slippers for a secret sister and am wondering what washing inst to send with them.  I mean, if she washes them in the washer, obviously, they'll shrink more...so, ...?  By hand only?  Also, I put them through the washer once and let them air dry.  They are OK on my 9.5 foot, but she's a 10...will they stretch out some or should I make another pair?

congrats on the felted slipper..

you can always be safe with hand washing but really if she was to wash in COLD water in the washing machine she will be all good..oh,and dry flat/air dry..

as for the size you can stretch them a bit by molding it while it is wet/damp..

Have Fun!!
