White Felt Cloche Hat…

white-felt-1I don’t do a great amount of felting but, from time to time, I get a creative nudge & give it another go.. As a novice  felter the results are often unpredictable… sometimes disappointing… always a learning curve… & sometimes, as in this  lovely white felt cloche hat, super delightful…

The cloche hat was crocheted in 100% pure Australian wool & felted in a washing machine then embellished with a touch of beige & brown rovings that have been needle felted onto the white base. The decorative knotted braid was hand felted from 100% pure Australian fleece & attached to the hat.

    Thanks, Sindhu… Yes, I imagine that felt hats would be of little comfort in India’s climate…

    Yes, you’re right Carol, a freeform band would work well too, I’ve done that many times… but sometimes it’s good to keep it simple 🙂

    Lovely! I am imagining a felted hat with some of your freeform as a band (or whatever). They would make a marvellous combination.

    Wow! Nice hat! I wish I could make felt, but, it is of no use for me in India 😦
