happy hats

Hand dyed Merino wool fiber felted art hat

Hats are a whole new world of idea making for this artist. There are many important factors to consider when one goes about creating something she envisions another will want to put on her head! This is quite a challenge for me! How whimsical dare I go?

This is a real learning opportunity for me as I continue to explore my way around felting. I’m making my own patterns and bumping into some snafus and opportunities for growth as I do so (read messing up a bunch!)

Below are the first dozen hats from the HappyArt studio. I will love to hear your comments! For improvements, unedited reactions, and suggestions.
