Happy Felt Hat Makers
Just after I took my Moy MacKay class I taught a felt hat class to 6 enthusiastic students. they wanted different styles but they all wanted folds in the top.
and decorating, I am sure I took more pictures at this point but something went wrong because they are not on my phone.
Then there was rubbing and rolling to do.
Here they are after some shrinking but not there yet.
The did shrink much to everyone’s amazement. I don’t think they really believed they would ever fit.
These brims on these 2 wide brimmed hats are to heavy to hold themselves up while wet. They will be fine once they are dry.
I didn’t get a picture of the last one but it turned out well too. It was a really fun day for everyone.
