"Bedecked Christmas Tree" Hat- Part 3 of 4

Handmade green pre-felt is trimmed into 'spiky' sections...


                                      ...and added to the surface of the project.



                                 It's prevented from 'felting into' the body of the hat...



                                     ...by pieces of thin plastic from a grocery bag.



                                                    Mid-way through felting...



                                 ...the piece is cut open and the resist is removed.



                            (The hat is flipped inside-out from time to time during felting...

                                                     ...to work on the seams.)



                                    Whew...the hat finally reaches its desired size!!



                                                 The fully felted hat...drying.



                                      At first, it reminded me a little of a dragon...
                      
                                           
                                             ...but as ornaments were added...


                                        ...its true nature began to reveal itself! :)



                                                 Next time: the finished hat!!
