Back to school for me today. I am excited as always to get back and plan for my new students, but I am going to miss the lazy no schedule days of summer.....

I am so happy! I have been wanting to make a hat. Actually, watching someone make a felted hat is what drew me to this whole felting thing in the first place! It has always scared me a little. I don't have a fancy hat block and I don't like going through the whole test swatch thing. Well yesterday some natural wool that I ordered came in. It is the prettiest smoky gray color. Perfect for a hat! I made a resist using floor underlayment (awesome resist material)....it sorta looks like the shape of a bell. After felting it, it looked like it really wanted a flower, so I made one. Here it is! I love it and it fits like a glove...I mean hat! ;)
