Inventive Hungarian Hat Workshop- Part 7

Cutting the hat open...


                                         ...and removing the primary (foam) resist.



                                                     Making decorative slits...



                                                     ...in the front of the hat...



                                               ...and widening them slightly...

                                                          ...with a fingertip.



                                         Snipping a small hole in the 'hat lining'...

                                         ...and removing the bubble wrap resist.



                                                          Felting continues...



                               ...as the project is worked in various orientations...



                                                      ...for even shrinkage.



                                                         We're nearly there! 



                             Next time: all of the finished hats from our workshop!

Ahh, at last it makes sense. My three dimensional visualisation skills completely failed me on this one!

Rachel--Hahaha...glad that's a mystery solved! :)
Natasha--as you make the color transition, use some fine fibers of the previous color on top of the new one.
