It's Too Darn Hot!

Very hot 4th of July, and warmer still today in southwest Michigan. As the day cooled down a bit last night, I decided to make sculpted felt hat. I used two very thin layers of roving in the lay out, so it took a lot of rolling to get the rate of shrinkage that I needed. It is a light weight, very sturdy felt.

Today I am going to get an ice pack and take a nap through the heat of the day. Is it "sweater weather" yet?

I LOVE this hat!!! The shape is perfect and the colors are vibrant!

I can sympathize with you about the heat. Here's to hoping you can cool off a bit!

Hi Kelly!
Thanks for the compliment on the hat. I too love the colors and the shape is kind of random folds.

It's going to be pretty hot for the next few days. So thankful for ICE!
