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.”

“Thank you for taking the time to give me some tips over the phone. Using all of Living Felt’s supplies helped my bonnet making much easier. I used Living Felt resist material, mesh, olive oil soap (which I love), bamboo mat (was larger than the one I had).
The wool I used was MC-1 Merino-cross fast felting batt [Caramel].
Thank you for your wonderful customer service!”

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!
This absolutely exquisite child’s outfit including a felted hat and a felted cape
in an ocean-sea theme was created by Ekaterina Tasminskaâ in Moscow, Russia.
Her work is breathtaking, and can be seen on the Russian Master’s site (similar to our etsy).
