My first attempt at hat making.

Lickety Splitter said...

First attempt looks like a success! I love that color!

Jasmine said...

Thank you :) Cheekily, i chose a colour that my daughter likes as I didn't think my first attempt would be very successful and it can be added to her dressing up box. It came out better than expected and i think I need to trust in the strength of wool a little more and not make it so thick next time.

Très elegant. You might store it with lavendar so it will give off an appropriate scent.

Crafty Green Poet said...

what a lovely hat! I guess your daughter will love dressing up in that!

Jukka said...

this is very fine this hat.

Ginga Squid said...

Gorgeous tones. Very impressive for a first attempt!

Jasmine said...

Susan, that is such a good idea. We grow lavender in our tiny garden.

Crafty - She does look sweet in it.

Jukka - Thank you :)

Ginga - Thank you. It took a little needle felting too, but I'm pleased it held its shape. I have only used a resist once before and it wasn't too successful.

Hello Jasmine, hope you are having a happy weekend. How are your bundles? Mine have turned pink and there is activity! Thanks for your comments on my post today. I enjoyed lots of natural dyeing experiments last year without mordants. I want to pursue this some more but have quite enough going on at the moment ... maybe later! Also want to start a proper dye journal at some stage. I will let you know and shall watch your experiments with interest

Happy weekend
Carolyn ♥

Not surprised about the lavender.

Titus said...

Wow! I am very much a hat person, and I do admire this.

Joei Rhode Island said...

Lovely color...lovely hat. Now we need a picture of *some one special* wearing it. I agree with Susan...lavender will not only match the tone but chase away the moths!

Tammie Lee said...

Carolyn - I have entrusted my bundle to my dad as I know I will not be able to stop myself peeking and amending or adding. I do need to check that he actually placed it in his garden though :)

Lynne - Naomi calls it her dancing hat xx

Titus - Thank you, I'm having fun playing with hats right now.

Joei - I will add a someone special to the next post. I don't like to use many photographs of people here though.

Tammy - Thank you x

Yvette - Thanks, sometimes it feels that way, at others I wonder why I am not doing this better. Other peoples felt alays looks better to me than my own xx

Lettuce - Thank you. My silk order seems to be taking forever to arrive. I have an idea for Made4Aid...

Lyon, Shadow, Carol, Cat & Brian - Thank you all. I am having fun playing. Felt is so versatile.

Jasmine said...

Caio - Thank you. Congratulations on the book. I'm glad you are feeling like painting. Tonight, I thionk I will do a little more on the painting you were advising me on last November. It seems like I put it away a long time ago, and am ready to start again now.

I am having the same problems with blogger too. x

Assayya said...

i love the color.
this hat is asking for spring and springflowers.
like the fragrance of purple seringues fill the air

jeannette stgermain said...

Wow, your first attempt! That looks very promising when you develop this medium! And lavender is one of my favorite colors!

Fiona said...

I have just found your hat. And a very fine hat it is too. Will you be making more?
