Bubble Hat

Last time I showed you a bubble hat I was making http://wp.me/p1WEqk-2za after it was felted it looked like this

purple before bubbles

and the inside like this

purple before bubbles inside

Next I added the bubbles using felt balls for the ones that stay in and marbles for the one I will cut.

Then I cut the bubbles and you can leave them but I stretched them to so more of the colour inside the bubbles.

I didn’t get a picture of it finished . I thought I had but it was one when 2 hats had the bubbles but where not cut. It will give you an idea.

If I can I will take a picture of them at the show today and edit it in. They may already be sold, I can’t remember.  I know I sold some of the bubble hats.

I did just manage to get a picture of the hat. is sold about 1/2 hour later.

    I love the idea of cutting into the bubbles and using marbles. I shall have to give it a go. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice design on the bubble hats. It is always cool when you cut out the marbles to see the inner colors. Hope your weekend went well.

    • Thanks Ruth. I like playing with bubbles. You can see a bubble cuff in one of the new pictures on the post. I did update the post and it has two pictures of the finished hat.

    wonderfulk hats. I’m sure you’ll sell them both. At what stage did you make bubbles >_ from what I see I assume it was after fulling. How did you shape the hat in the end? In the future I must try to make a hat too.

    • Thank you Nada. I add them after fulling. I add a few then try it on and add bubbles until its the right size. I did update the post and it has a picture of the finished hat

    Great hats Ann! I love the bubble one. It’s fun to create such fun things. I hope you get another pic before you sell it! Hats are on my list as well.

    Adding the ‘bubbles’ gives the hat such a lovely shape – I’m not surprised it sold so quickly – it’s gorgeous.

    When you get a chance would you please give us step by step instructions on adding the bubbles and felting them in – Thank you – Frances

    • Frances they are not felted in. the wool is stretched around the felt ball or marble while the hat is still wet. They have elastics around the bases. I use elastics for horse tail and main braiding. you have to get them on really tight.

    Hi Ann I am new at felting and wanted to ask how you added the “bubbles” to the hat after the hat was felted? Did you add them before you fulled the hat.

    I love thee bubble affect and thought your hats were great.

    • Thanks Judy, all the bubble hats I have right now are wool. I will need to make some more for my next show. show pictures will be my next post. (Ann not Zed 🙂 )
