I did a 10 minute fast dash in hot water low water setting water in the washer. Took it out and got it partly dry and decided I wanted in a little smaller so re-toss't it into the machine again more hot water for about five more minute-ish til it got a little smaller. Turned over a kitchen bowl & put it on that to shape it while it dried. hugs, barbkeeling " Her website is www.keelingskrafts.com . Shes an amazing artisit so her website is just eyecandy.
