Honored to be a finalist….


I entered one of my hats in a hat competition and I am so honored to be a finalist! The competition was sponsored by the Judith M. Millinery supply house and The National NonWovens Fabric Company. The National NonWovens Fabric company makes a fabric they call WoolFelt. They are marketing the fabric to the millinery trade because the fabric can be used for sewn and blocked hats. All hats entered in the competition had to be made from the WoolFelt fabric. I used their orange color along with a brown Petersham ribbon.

The hat I created uses eleven panels in the crown section of the hat. Each panel is off-set to create the asymmetrical look. I also created an asymmetrical brim to mimic the shape of the crown. I have included a few pictures of my hat.
