The finished hat The finished hat November 19, 2013 shepherdessann Comments 17 comments Just a short post today to show you how my hat turned out. The top looked really cool on the form but when you put it on the over sized top looked funny. so I trimmed it down. I think it looks better. I hope you think so too. sorry for the bad pictures of it on my but I am not good at selfies. Share this:EmailPrintFacebookTwitterRedditPinterestLike this:Like Loading...

The finished hat looks great Ann and suits you well – felting involves a lot of ‘tweaking’ along the way and I think you were quite right to trim the top!
(Nothing wrong with your selfie – it’s good.)
Thanks Lyn. One of the things I like about felt is that you can tweak it along the way.
It looks great Ann. Trimming certainly toned it down and makes it look more sophisticated. Yummy colors!
Thanks Marilyn, purple is my favourite colour.
🙂 purple, teal and magenta are mine.
Yep, quite a difference. But it looks very good now that it is in better proportions.
Thanks Judy it did need the trimming.
It did sort of look like a mushroom cap before trimming. I like the sleeker, trimmed down look. The question is, do you like it? And will you wear it? I think it looks good on you.
Thanks Ruth. Yes I like it and I am wearing it. It has turned cold here.
I love the green and pink fibres on purple – that’s a scrummy colour combination! Agree with the other comments that the trimmed version looks brilliant.
Thanks Terry, I really like the yarns too.
It sort of reminds me of the kind of scarves some women wear to cover their head for religious purposes. They are often elegant and Nefertiti like. Of course, I like seeing it on you!
Thank you Julian. I never thought of the turban/scarfs but I see it. I should make a matching scarf. I will have to spin more of the blue/green yarn to do it.
It turned out great after trimming, Ann 🙂 Nice colours.
Thanks for sharing. I look forward to your emails. Am I crazy or did you send one out pertaining to Indigo Dying? I did not have a chance to read it yet and when I finally opened it and began reading my email locked up. After getting back into email that particular email is no longer in my mailbox. I love modern technology, but not always.
I hope this day finds you well and enjoying creative time.
Thank you Nan. Yes a new blog post was made today. It is about indigo and shibori.. Technology is a blessing and a curse.
