The making of ...




Jo was so very kind to introduce me into the world of hatmaking.  It was an interesting process to learn.
On a warm summerday we started to steam, used our force to shape the felt over the mould, handsewed everything and gave it our own touch. 
 








Very happy with the result, my own handmade winterhat. Finished it off with a little 'zsazsazsucrochettouch'
in wild silk.

A warm thank you to Jo for this wunderful opportunity and very nice day!

ps: she is not only good at making hats, but also a very good needlewoman, check her blog.

Een zalige dag was het ! Puur genieten om samen met jou een hoedje te maken :-) Geniet ervan strakjes in de winter !

Look at all the good quality ingredients. That is interesting to see that the felt started out as one big sheet. I remember making a felt "hat" in another way, but there are a few ways to do the same thing :)

Vroeg me al af hoe die hoeden gemaakt worden!
