You can't go wrong by making a nice felted hat for the cold winter months. This is a quick and easy project to make in about an hour, if the fabric has already been washed and ironed. It was great fun deciding how to decorate it. I suggest going to the links that I have included because she had a different look than mine.  I liked the idea that I made mine interchangeable. A felted craft can be made by using old sweaters or going to the thrift store and buying them.  Look at the hall I made today for 12 bucks! I priced a piece of felted wool at the craft store and it was 12X12 for about 5 dollars!  My instructions teach you how to make felted wool.  It also includes the pattern. To get a better idea on how the original pattern looks view the link.  Mine was too large because I added the ribbing and did not pink the edges.  Lets make a hat!

Really nice, Sunshiine! I'd love to see someone wearing it, because I'm having a hard time visualizing how it would look.

I have a small head so this hat does not fit very well. I assume it is a large. I added a couple of pictures here. I have always been camera shy so I don't like my picture taken. Wished I had a model. If you go to the link I provided a girl is modeling the same style. I am going to reduce the pattern so I have a size small. I may publish an Instructable about how to accomplish that. Thanks so much for the input. The hat is very cute. Sunshiine
Hi Sunshiine, the link is broken. Here is the correct link. http://resurrectionfern.typepad.com/resurrection_fern/2008/09/how-to-make-a-reversible-folkloric-felt-bonnet-a-sewing-tutorial.html.

Thanks susan for the input about the link. I fixed it. Have a super day!

It took me a long time searching the internet to find a free pattern that I liked. Thanks for commenting and have a nice day!

This is a cute hat. Reminds me of the one I seen at the mall for $50 with built in gloves. Love the felting ideas :)

Very nice :) - I could totally see this made for a little child using longer neckties and making them bunny ears... :D So, cute!
sunshiine (author)  canucksgirl2 years ago
Yes, I just might try making one later today now that you mention it. It was a lot of fun. Thanks for the idea and have a nice cozy day!
Sunshiine
You're very welcome! I think bunny ears would be cute - glad you do too!

Great job!

How did you do that? Cuuuuute!
open bracket, backslash, underscore, forward slash, close bracket - next line
open bracket, funny looking 'v' thingy over the 6 key, underscore, funny looking "v" thingy, close bracket - next line
open bracket, underscore, underscore, underscore, close bracket, Capital "O"

You didn't think I'd tell you, did you? - now you can make keyboard bunny...

Hmmm.... I wonder if anyone has made an ible on that yet???
