Matt’s truly fabulous felt fedora
Mary’s blue hat in the layout phase. This hat was wet felted over a resist.
Underneath the wet fiber is a “resist” in the bell shape of the hat.
Fiber is applied to both sides and wetted with soapy water in several layers before felting begins.
Notice the fibers laying on the plastic/bubble wrap. These will be carefully folded over on to the
side of the hat that you are viewing.
Mary’s finished hat, compete with feather and trim!
