Wet Felted Hat Class

Wet Felted Hat Class

I taught a small hat class this last week-end. I had 3 great students all doing different style hats. Donna was making her first hat and wanted a winter hat with a folded up brim.

Linda also a first time hat maker wanted an oversized pill-box hat in 2 pieces.

Jan who is on her 5th class and wanted a large turned up brim and a long tail to add curls and yarn embellishments to.

Then fulling and shaping (sorry no picture)

Everyone ended up with the hat they wanted.

Linda will need to sew the top piece into her hat when it’s dry and Jan will add her embellishments to the tail. I will post a picture when she has it finished.
