Here are my two latest babes both from natural icelandic sheep - one grey one brown.  I really love the icelandic natural batt.  Trimmed with corriedale and merino roving bits.






Enjoy!

I LOVE these hats!  I've thought about trying to make some but my head and hats don't seem to get along Smiley   Your hats are truly an inspiration.  WOW!

So beautiful! I especially like the blue wave-like embellishment on the second one.

What lovely royal blues GraceO   Smiley
And I love the way the flower tones in the royal blues + the natural shades of the hat.
Your eye for detail is superb.
Beautiful work!

But I have to ask...
What do you use as a base when needle felting your hats? And wouln't that take FOREVER? I'm just dying to know...

Awww thanks much everyone.  Hats are indeed one of my favorite things to make - just seems to take a while to get up the energy to do them. LOL

Yes, laminathegreat, it does take time - though using the tool that holds 5 needles helps.   In one of the other hat threads of mine it shows the foam head blocks - I cut and glue and make oval head blocks out of foam rubber cushions.
