A Lady's Hat

Learn how to create a sweet and simple Lady's Hat. Five pages are dedicated to the basic art of hat-making, including 31 photographs. 13 other hats are presented to introduce variations in design and style.

One of the most practical and fascinating characteristics of feltmaking is the possibility to create three-dimensional works without sewing. Learn how to layout your design motif, prepare a 2-tone wool base, control the shrinking process to form a specific shape, and study how to block a hat with a perfect brim.

Other 3-D projects illustrated in this book are toys and dolls, baby boots and adult slippers, shoulder bags, berets and art objects.
