I said in my last post that I’ve been asked to make a felt hat for a Christmas present. The lady wanted purples, maroons and a bit of black.
So here it is – You can see the silk hankies shining through – and the mottled colours blending together.
I’m very happy with how it turned out and want to make one for myself next!
In the next post I’ll diarise the actual process for anyone interested.

Here’s a quick catch up on my latest felt creations.
I finished the little green/maroon bowl by adding the circle I’d cut out to make the hole of the bowl. I needle felted a piece of wine coloured chiffon with some silk rovings and finished it off with a few red and orange coral beads. The photo doesn’t do the colours justice really – the silk that looks blue in the photo is really a greeny grey and blends with the bowl’s colours.
After struggling to like the tall green vase, my son upturned it and stuck it on his head.
“It’s a hat.”
I reluctantly had to agree it is a hat. I so wanted it to be a vase.
Donning the thing on my head, I had to admit it does look Dr Seussy, and pretty damn funtastic!
So hat it is.
