Teaching a hat Class.

Yesterday I had a great time at Alpaca Tracks. We did use wool instead of alpaca only because it felts faster so works better for a class. Now they are all ready to make hats from there lovely alpaca’s fibre.

As you can see I am not the only one taking pictures with my phone.

The best part of this day was this hat. Not be cause it is an unusual or far out but because it was a reluctant hat. The lady was not sure she wanted to make a hat, she not a hat person, maybe she would sell it.

But at the end of the day she loved her hat and was going to keep it for herself.

These two hats turned out great, very mysterious.

I didn’t get any other hat pictures. wit was a very staggered ending and there where 3 pill box styles that will have to be sewn together after they are dry.

All in all a great day. I think everyone had a good time and was happy with there hats.   And we had crepes for lunch.alpaca tracks crepes

    I love the hats with the ‘long ears’ but my faves are the last two – very chic.

  2. I am a former hat maker too. I used fleece, mostly and tapestry too. I like the last two. I would embellish them with ribbon flowers. Oh, so chic.

    • Judy what haven’t you done? You can’t see in the picture but they both had quite a bit of embellishment. We were in a basement so not great for taking pictures.

    What fun! Would have loved to be there. I’m with Lyn and Judy on favoring the last two hats…very cool! Could add a needle-felted flower and change it with the seasons!

    Ann – it looks like everyone had a great time learning how to make their hats. They are so proud wearing their creations. And crepes – yum! 🙂

    It looks like a great day and the hats look great too 🙂
    I keep meaning to make myself a couple of hats, one for summer and one for winter.
