How to make a felt hat is very interesting to me and I hope to you also if you have ever wanted to try making one. Everything you will need and how-to create it are in the instructions. Visit: costumes.orgThis project is important for two reasons. First, it shows the student how to “block” the crowns of hats (useful for buckram as well as felt) which is necessary for making any round crowned type hat. Second, it shows the student how to make a felt hat without using difficult to-find hatter’s felt. Since many theaters cannot afford the time or money to acquire hatter’s felt, this is a useful skill for the costume props technician. Standard felt is available in a great variety of colors at most fabric stores and is fairly inexpensive.

    That’s interesting. I learnt making my hats all by myself and I don’t use any utensils for that. I might make my work much more difficult but I got used to that already. WAnd I think the results are not bad.
