Where do you get individually designed hand made felt hats? Some of my hats can be seen and tried on at the Crafts of Angus Showcase and Shop in Letham, Angus, alternatively you can catch me at a fair or contact me at home to arrange either to visit or have something made to suit your needs.
HATS OF FELT
Most of my felt hats have been made simply by creating a three dimensional piece then blocking to shape on a hat block, a few have been made by making the felt hood and employing millinery techniques for constructing the hats. There are few which have been made using commercially produces felt hoods / capelines.
Hats - Fabric
My fabric hats are stitched.
I use fabric remnants or recycled materials, (always cleaned prior to use), meaning that each peice of work is individual. Mostly the fabrics consist of natural fibre content, though if I find an exceptional peice of cloth I will try to make use of it.
These hats are retro inspired and are light-weight and an easy to wear alternative to a full hat or the smaller fascinators.
