It’s easy to make these baby to adult size hats for costume, photo prop, family portrait, wedding party, formal, casual, anywhere wear! They are soft, comfortable, flexible, and durable. Ideal for tossing into a suitcase. Add a ribbon, flower, or vintage button, if you’d like. Make a hat for every season… for any reason. Smiles all around… with a bowler up top!

Crochet first, using basic stitches. Then, do the felting process with your washing machine. Hot water, detergent, and agitation will cause stitches to shrink, cling, and tangle together to form a solid fabric that you can shape and let dry to size.

Easy to follow, user-friendly format.
Stitch key with descriptions and instructions for felting, included.

Clearly written instructions for each of 3 sizes.
