HATS HATS HATS, I have an all consuming drive to produce hats out of recycled shirts and other material. Here is my fave to date

Felting extravaganza

Well, due to extreme cold, this whole week end was dedicated to crafting. I finally dyed a bunch of wool that I have stashed in anticipation of a felting idea-explosion, here are the chronicles...First... Boil a pot of cool-aid and food dye, let the wool simmer for about 15 minutes or so, then drain, rinse and let dry. Beautiful and non-toxic. Next I experimented with wet felting, agitating with my hands, hot water and glycerin soap. Then I went crazy and sewed the felt with my sewing machine, needle felted, ripped apart, etc. This was my final product for tonight...
