This hat came about kinda by accident! I was wanting to play with needle felting and started searching about for some scrap felt to practice on when I came upon this hat. It is actually a failed prototype I made a while back of my 1920's style cloche design Stella.

After playing around with it I suddenly realized if I turned it around and tilted it just so, suddenly it had a wonderful 1940's silhouette. It was like finding an unknown $5 bill in your pocket and it feeling like free money!



The needle felting is a ton of fun too. I unspun some Lamb's Pride Bulky to felt with and just had at it freestyle.





If you're interested in modifying the pattern for this I have details on my blog.

That is really adorable! Happy accidents are the best ^_^

I think you should experiment with this format more, patternless and organic, and see what you come up with!

Wow! That looks wonderful. The black detail on the side really adds something. Great colour too.

Super cute!  It reminds me of a hat Rachel McAdams wore in the Notebook.  And you look great in it.
