Brilliant Nuno Felted Mad Hatter Jacket and Hat

Nuno Felt Mad Hatter Jacket by Sonja Weeks-Oswalt featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Astounding, Remarkable, Brilliant! Sonja shared in our fb group how she made this INCREDIBLE hat!!! It took a lot of finagling, but she really pulled it off!

“So i made a hatter jacket to go with the hatter hat. Nuno felt and i have a love hate relationship.

I love the potential but never seem to have enough control (or space). This uses silk chiffon dyed with coffee, asparagus merino, merino luxury batt in forest, and the Autumn leaves artist pack. I adapted the pattern from a Russian dress pattern. Please excuse my sad hatter makeup and selfie timer portrait session.”

Awesome Fire Mountain Designer Pack Felted Ensemble

Nuno Felted Scarf and Wet Felted Hat by Sonja Weeks Oswalt featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We challenged the ever-adventurous Sonja Weeks Oswalt of Tennessee to felt up anything she felt inspired to with our Fire Mountain Designer Pack, and she made this awesome ensemble.

She added approx. 2oz of additional fiber so she could make all 3 pieces. The scarf is nuno felted and the silk was initially dyed with Kool-Aid. The wrist warmers were wet felted over a resist, we have a free video lesson for this, and the hat was first wet felted flat and then shaped over a hat block.

The wrist warmers can shrink quite a bit!

Maria used very thin layers and it is beautiful and drapey with a nice hand. It could be converted into a table runner or functional item also.
