When autumn came I decided to dust out my clouche hat block which I've only 'tried' using once. I don't think I really like the shape as I think I prefer a brim... But here's the end result.
I love red, so, had red felt hood which I steamed and blocked on to the hat block. As the block is all one piece I had a hard time trying to stretch and pull the felt properly..
I had some trimmings I bought from Paris recently and thankfully it was long enough to go around the hat and made a little bow and I've also attached a vintage pearl button. I think it looks quite cute, but it feels a bit tight around my head... (I think I have a big head, but I've measured and it's about 22 inch which is what the average size is? I think my head feels bigger than normal as I have 'boofy' hair hehe) but I'm sure it'll stretch.
Putting through more orders for felt hoods, so, can't wait for them to arrive so I can start making and hopefully sell!
