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.”

Precious Unicorn Hat Set for Babies

Felted Unicorn Hat Set by Daniela Aubrey featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Daniela is a newborn photographer that began making her own props such as bonnets and toys for use and for sale. They are so darn precious, it’s no wonder other photographers want them also! I wonder…can grown ups wear that at all? 🙂

She used CX-2 Winter White to create this sweet set.

“Finally an image in use of our beautiful unicorn set!!! Lovely image done by Stacie May from Stacie Paris Photography

Gorgeous Felted Hat and Scarf Ensemble

Felted Whalen Hat by Erin and Steve Whalen featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog. They used Merino Top in Bitter Chocolate, Tide pool, Mushroom, Atlantic, and Cornflower.

We LOVE this gorgeous ensemble designed and felted for us by Erin and Steve Whalen of Wisconsin.

Felting is something this lovely couple has learned they like to do together! Erin designed the hat and did the felting; Steve did the fulling, shaping, and finishing. Each piece is so artful, soft and beautiful.

For this custom creation, they used our Merino Top in Bitter Chocolate, Tide pool, Mushroom, Atlantic, Cornflower; plus a pink merino inside to achieve some migration to the top.

The matching scarf, pin and hat band were gifts that we so cherish! These are currently on display in our shop, but we’re pretty sure Marie will be eyeing them come Winter 😉

A Little Felted Flair for the Winter

 Mary Ashmore created this wonderful, free spirited hat, and we think it will turn a few heads this winter!

Mary shares her technique, and says, “I wet felt a basic  hood and then shape it on a plain hat block.  I use sewing, needle felting, blocking, wire and anything else that may come to hand to create the shapes which I do free-form (wherever the felt takes me.  This hat is a combination of merino and corriedale.  I blend different types of wool and occasionally silk to produce felts with different properties.

 

I learned early on that Olive Oil soap is wonderful for felting and leaves the wool in great shape.  I use your olive oil soap because it’s a good value and great quality, and I don’t just use it for feltmaking.
