1. First I lay down my bamboo beach matt, then I layer thin sheets of the batts from the wool, placing each layer in the different direction. I will do at least 6 layers and try to keep them very thin.
Well here is where I forgot to continue to take pictures as my hands were so soapy and wet and well I just downright forgot. Sorry about that. With this particular hat I then dyed it purple in my large crock pot after it was shaped then reshaped it and finished with starch and finishing the edge.
8. Let dry again, Then I like to spray a fabric stiffener and let dry again.and then embellish how ever you desire again, it is your design. Sometimes bold is fun!
9. After it is dry, it is time to embellish. Have fun.
Here is a sample of some of my finished hats.
