I finally finished this darn thing. I got an inspiration on how to block it to dry and it worked really well. I took a bowl and sat a straw hat with about the dimensions I wanted and the look I wanted onto the bowl then shaped the red hat over it and let it dry. It came out fine. I still want to make a solid wool one so the brim will be stiff and not floppy, but that can wait for awhile. I needed a hat for tomorrow's luncheon and the other hat looks like a bellman's cap on me.

Sorry in the delay in replying, I just saw the post

I used Lion Brand Wool for Felting and Bernat Disco in Mowtown Mauve

It was a hit at my luncheon. One lady wants to know how to do it.
