No Fooling!

It may be "April Fool's Day" today...

 
...but it's no joke how perfectly these slippers fit! :)

 
While watching my friend open his birthday gift this morning...

...I mentioned that I had been keeping my 'fingers crossed' that they'd be the right size.



Happily, I received an e-mail from him later in the day which read...

"A picture is worth a thousand words."...

...and he attached these photos as proof. :)
 
Happy 65th birthday, David...

...wishing you many more happy and healthy years to come!

Congratulations girlfriend!
A wonderful gift for a good friend, and a perfect fit as well. You are batting 100% on this project. :) I know he is one happy man this morning. :)

Mattie--I was a little worried that they wouldn't be long enough...especially because I had put the leather sole on them (which would limit their 'stretchability')...but luckily, they fit. :)
Sandie--Thanks! Yes...he was surprised at the posts and the amount of work that went into them.

Perfect! You inspired me to do pre-felts. Great to work with it to make slippers like these.

Terriea--Yes, I think that they're quite useful for making a uniform design in any finished project! :)
