Bundy's new hat

Bundy's new hat, originally uploaded by wildjinjer.

Every summer for the last 3 summers, I've taught a hat class for CCA's summer program for middle-schoolers, YASP. I teach them how to make hand-felted hats. This little sample has a separate brim sewn to the crown. The felt is decorated with different blue wools and yarns.

Now if only it weren't impossible to get her to sit still!

This is a hand-felted wool hat. The bottom of the brim has a layer of silk chiffon felted into it, mostly just to see what it would look like (not terribly different than without).

It fits her a little too tightly now, so I have to look around for some object to re-block it with.
