Has anyone tried felting a pirate hat? I'm thinking we may give in and be pirates at the ren fest this year. Being a fibre geek, I figure I could make the hat. I just wonder if anyone has tried this before....Huh?

Yeah, I'm wanting to figure out how to make a tri-corner hat as well, so I can modify it for this awesome idea I have for a hat (it would have a veil, and the big feather, but be smaller and more feminine than most pirate hats, like a weird cross between a Victorian lady and a pirate hat). So, I'm definitely interested in seeing if anyone figures out how to do this.

in the theater costume shop in college i made a cavalear hat by majorly stretching out a pre-felted hat piece onto a block form.  just keep the rounded top form, keep the base of the round part tight and stretch the hell out of the edges so it became huge and flat.  the whole time we were spraying starch stuff on it.  then we flipped up one side, put tons of trim and feathers and such on it, and had a lovely hat.  unfortunately it was all done in lavendar and pink.  the character wearing it was a girlie-man.

if you do it without the felted piece already this seems to be a good substitute: http://www.ovnf.com/Felting%20your%20Hat.pdf

they seem to have good forms for needle felting here: http://www.marrhaven.com/fltndlforms.html

i just don't necessarily recomend making it lavendar and pink.  it was...odd.
