This week has been all about felt! I had a lull in commissions of portraits and so sat down to make a hat for my upcoming Witches Fair. The process was so much fun, if a little messy and complicated, but I have a very clean kitchen floor now!!!
I was surprised by the reaction on Facebook when I posted the pictures and the first hat sold immediately. The next hat was much easier to make as I'd figured out what equipment to use and how to make some templates for a uniform finish. Most of my equipment is improvised from whatever was lying around at the time. No expensive moulds for me!
So here it is, the collapsible Witches hat inspired by the hats worn by the Owen Sister's in Practical Magic! This hat is The Midnight and here it is with center extended, you can see the point in the shadow!
