Mad Hatters

Dee Kelly's First Felt Hat

Dee Kelly's First Felt Hat

We had a lovely afternoon on Sunday last at the Drop In session in Lucan. We had planned to make a small childs hat to test out the pattern and process however most people made a full size hat – this is Dee Kelly’s  first ever felt hat and I think it looks great.

Eleanor Roche went to The Fabric Gallery in Bray for our Drop In session there and there are some great pic on Sharon Well’s blog site –

On Sunday Gabi Mc Grath showed us some really nice pieces she was working on, using  inpiration from the wonderful Hungarian feltmakers Judit Pocs, one of these was an ingenious neckpiece which had a little pouch on the back for minding your rings while felting.
