Wet-Felted Jewel-Tone Hat- Part 1 of 2

Cutting pre-felt into squares...


                                       ...and placing them on a bubble wrap resist.



                                             Pieces of bright silk come next...



                                                        ...followed by...



                                                   ...layers of wool roving. 


        
                                           The project is then flipped to side two...
   

                       ...and more pre-felt squares are added to the resist surface.


                                                     Silk bits come next...

                               ...and the wool from side one is wrapped to the front...



                                        ...and additional layers of wool are added.



                                                 Mid-way through felting...

                                                  ...the resist is removed.



                                                Next time: the finished hat.

Warm felt hats are such a good idea in the winter, and making your own is so much more interesting, isn't it, than buying one!

This one is also going to be great, I am sure.
