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.
