Again many thanks to those who comment.  Sometimes I wish I could be more free flowing and non-traditional  - though my technique is free flowing and does not use patterns, my hands still put out pretty classic hats.  Am continuing to develop technique aiming for soft and flexible hats that hold together well - hats that are wearable in todays life style.

It means so much to hear that many of you like these.  Hugs.

Your hats are stunning, Grace O.  I'm especially loving the second one with the flower detail.  I personally really like the style of your hats, to me they look classic 40's, and classic never goes out of style.

In fact, I think 40's + 50's is becoming more fashionable atm.
What with all the polka dots and skirts

Thanks much, encouragement and kind words much appreciated.  Sometimes my hats seem to me to have a daring flapper aire.  Cloches are my favorites to wear and to make.

Am gearing up to try a royal blue one. Smiley

 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.
Could you point me to that thread? i've looked and looked and I can't find it!
I'm curious about needle felting the hats because I want to make a felt pirate style hat for me and my husband for the ren fest this summer. I was going to wet felt them but now you have my wheels turning on maybe needle felting.. it may make the big brim easier!!!!!!!
(Though I did find more and more of your felt work as I looked, good good stuff!! I'm so inspired to get unpacked and get rolling now!!)
