Wet Felted Top Hat

 

I have had this funny little idea percolating away for the longest time...a wet felted miniature top hat. Suddenly, it was time, a wee little top hat was waiting to be created. Originally I thought I'd make some for the faeries who live under the floor, they will not be left out, but this one is for my little doll friend Tika, it's to go with a fun party outfit I'm making her. She loves the new top hat and looks so cute! (Tiny, isn't she? That's a quarter she's holding!) I have to give Heather at Wool love-functional fiber art a great deal of credit, she is so informative when showing her projects, that I'm always learning something from her extraordinary projects/tutorials and I was able to pick up some great tips for wet felting.
I hope you have had a wonderful, creative week, 
Blessings Friend! 

Be sure to check out this weeks Fiber Arts Friday over at WonderWhy, where there are always a lot of creative ideas to explore.

  1. That hat turned out great! I can only imagine you rolling the fiber to felt between your fingers since the project was on such a small scale.

    1. Well you are a very busy lady, that's how! I am always amazed by your projects, and this little hat would not have been possible but for all the great tutorials I've read over at your wonderful blog!
