Hello!

This is a felted beret I made for a niece this Christmas.  Crocheted, felted wool with needle-felted dots-n-details, and button eyes.


Adapted from this pattern:   http://www.numei.com/knittingpatterns_FeltedTamBeret.htm

I didn't have any black WOOL felt, so I made the face with black yarn.  Given how I expected it to look, I'm actually quite pleased with the result.


Thanks for looking, and any tips for future projects joyfully received!

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

If only I could get one! The child is soooo active that most of the holiday pictures came out blurred.

I actually gave them a standing offer to convert it into a pillow; the band size is correct for her head, but the main part of the beret looks huge on her wee, toddler's body...sorta turns her into a mushroom...  Undecided
