Funny but Cute

This picture is for Linda. See what I mean, sweetie, about how BIG these are before felting! Because you can't really tell from the picture I posted in my March 4th post with the other hat, I decided to ask Vicky at work if she would take a picture for me so I could PROVE the difference. So now everyone can see how big the hat is prior to felting. OK... stop laughing now. Well, OK, I forgive you if you can't. Heaven knows I look at it and laugh, too. BTW, if you think my office is messy from this picture, you should see it in person! And that isn't a flaw in the picture towards the right - that is my ruler sticking up out of my lazy susan turny organizer sitting on my desk!

So you want to see how this turned out AFTER felting? It was the "flat brim" hat pattern (only difference is the brim) and the picture on the pattern made it look more like a fedora than what mine turned out like. Granted, it has a bit of the Dr. Seuss look to it, still, and yet I can't help but like it. I do wish, however, that the top had shrunk more but perhaps what I will do if I make another is just shorten it a couple of inches (do 5 instead of 7 from the crown) and a smaller band... anyway, the finished product is this... (Yeah, yeah... I just didn't want to wear pink 3 days in a row and I *always* wear pink on Friday! And don't laugh... I *know* I need makeup, I'm just too lazy!) (Are you in suspense yet? hehehee)
