Hat on a Ball? Huh?

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

.
The very clever Robbin Firth of Heartfelt Silks has come up with yet another very fun class.
.
When she brought this hat in and said she felted it, I have to admit I didn’t get it.  I thought it was really cute, but I wasn’t sure people would be interested.

Hat on a Ball

.
So she asked if she could come in and teach me how to make one myself.
.
OMG!!!  This was the most fun thing I have EVER made in this shop.  EVER.
.

It all starts with a ball

.

Layering silk and wool

 .

All wrapped up

.

Control top nylons are next! Yep!

.

Soak it in hot water and bag it up

.

Bounce it!

.

Bounce it some more!

.

Let the air out of the ball and take it out

.

Flip it right side out, onto a bowl or hat stand and shape it

.

Get it exactly as you like it and let it dry

.

How cute is this hat???

.
So, again, Robbin was right.  This was so much fun!  She is totally right, I’ll admit it.  This class is going to fill up fast!
.
Thanks Robbin!
