More on my felting weekend. We all meat at Maureen’s ( http://www.dreamspinfibres.ca/ ) A great place, she has so much fiber to choose from.
Three of us made hats based on a hat in Judit Pocs video. It seems to be gone from the internet. It was mostly about making a rug. This is Diane and Susan( http://www.suzannetowns.ca/ ) sizing up a template.
They made their hats on the first day. They like a really firm hat so their scaled up the template and added more layers than I do.
Susan added come great colour and Dian used some resists to reveal some fabric on the layer underneath.
Diane added a string of small felted yarn balls to her hat. The parts that stick down were up to high so the pulled them down and twisted them to get them in a better position.
On the second day I did my hat. I adjusted the pointy parts so they would be lower. and left the pointy top smaller.
I should have used a different colour yarn for the embellishments. The colour was much to close the hat colour.
Dian made another hat on the second day. I didn’t get any pictures of it in progress. the template was like witches hat.
I have to give one of these a try. I like the way it is folded in on itself.
