Felted Hat

This summer, I helped a friend make a felted hat.  She was very creative and unique in her design.  She laid out the wool in a wide rectangle, 4 criss-crossing layers, then we lightly felted this before placing it on a hood form to begin to establish the 3 D form.  Then we placed the felt onto a hat form.  She added pre-felts of leaves and berries, added an interior hat band, an edge trim and more.  The result was beautiful.
