Feltfull 2013 Hats- Part 3 of 3

Laying out wool and hand-dyed silk...

 
...like I did with hat number two.

 
Mid-way through felting...

 
...and after removing the bubble wrap resist.

 
The finished hat, displayed on a 'hat block' made from two wine bottles(!)...

...and accompanied by several others from our wonderful class.

 
Getting a little 'carried away' with my teacher...

...the oh-so-delightful Judit Pocs! Grin.

 
A closer view of side one...



...and side two.
 
Next time: a little foray into felt collars and brooches!

Looking through your Feltfull posts - You're hats are so creative and colorful, and they look like lots of fun to make. I love the flag too. I think I want to make something like that to hang on our porch.

What a clever design, beautiful colours as always!

Heather Woollove said...

Melissa--Thanks!
Sarah--You're right-the flag would look wonderful
on a porch...maybe hanging down instead of 'flying in the wind'?!?
Carrie--It was a lot of fun to make! :)
Cathy--Thanks so much!

Heather I am loving the colours you have got with all of these hats! The background fibres creeping through the bright silk have made it soooo pretty.
Those earflaps are awesome! The bit on top puts me in mind of Roman helmets :)

I can't get all of your photos to load :-( I'm going to have to check back from work because my internet doesn't want to load your page. Frustrated.

Heather Woollove said...

Andrea--Grrrr...hope it comes up for you soon! XO

WonderWhyGal said...

The photos finally loaded! I had to open up just your blog and not the specific post. Grrr

Anyways, I finally got to see your hat and OH MY AWESOME! It's absolutely fantastic!

Heather Woollove said...

Andrea--That's my fault. Next time, I'll try to remember to link only the blog itself!
