The is a velour felt hat I made for my millinery class… I started by steaming the hat, then pulling it over a block I had shaped by putting some rope in a spiral shape. I then pinned the edges close to the rope to create a more defined shape and I let it sit overnight to hold the shape. The next step was to shape the brim. After this, I sewed on the spiral with embroidery thread, both to hold the spiral in place and define and for aesthetic value. The last step was to add a green hat band and model my hat! I’m very proud of how this came out.
