Intro: Transform a Plain Hat Into Something Special
Did you know you can take an inexpensive winter hat and turn it into a smashing designer piece? You can! And it will be one-of-a-kind and uniquely yours!
Read on to see how...
Step 1: Start With a Hat
I have a thing for hats. I don't know why - I don't really look good in them. But I saw this one and had to buy it. It won't just look cute, it will be warm in the winter...
I did wish it had a little more 'zip' and color, though. So I decided that I could fix that. Here's how:
You will need:
- a hat
- a button
- felted wool or felt
- needle and thread
Step 2: Make Felted Wool Flowers
Cut a couple of flowers out of felted wool. You can use one or more colors.
Cut them in different shapes or identical ones - if you cut identical ones you will need to turn each one slightly when you layer them so they will create a layered look.
Sew the button in the middle and take several 'gathering' stitches to give the flower some depth.
Step 3: Sew Them On!
All you have to do now is sew your flower onto the hat - voila! Beautiful!
