'Neighborhood Park' Hat- Part 2 of 3

Laying out a pre-felt kite and adding tree roots.

 


After a second layer of fiber was added to the grass and road.


 


The fully wrapped resist.

 


After rolling and felting...with the resist removed.

 


The hat back.

 


The front of the hat.

 


A hint for next time! :)

 


I used small triangles of pre-felt for the kite body...

...and made a tail with a thin strip of pre-felt and bits of pencil roving.

I added another layer of fiber to the entire hat surface...

...refreshing the yellow center lines on the road.

After rolling and felting for a time...

...I cut the felt at the hat bottom, and removed the resist.

I finished felting the hat, trimmed the brim...

...and stuffed some fiber into the trees for 'puffiness'.

Next time: the finished hat...and what a silly hat it is!! :)
