Start by choosing your favorite wool roving or batting
and one of the unique Soft Foam
Hat Forms along with your
favorite felting needles, and begin needle felting your hat.
When the needle felting portion is completed, gently
remove your needle felted hat from the Soft Foam
your needle felted hat over a Hat Shaper and
smooth it out and center it.
Very slowly, pour about 2-3 cups of
very hot soapy water right on the crown and let it soak into the fiber.
Carefully, massage the crown area, top and sides until the fiber starts to
make a skin.
Then use some more water and thoroughly
wet the brim.
Massage and rub on the brim until a
skin starts to form. Then you can finish making your hat as suggested
in the slide show on the Hat Shapers website.
