I've wanted to make a hat for as long as I've been felting but something always got in the way. I fell in love with Jannio's hats on Etsy, in fact I purchased a gorgeous deep red one (I'll have to take a picture) but Her Majesty has a rather large head (yes, she does) and it's a little on the small side but still worth having nevertheless. If you want one, go to Etsy and find her - she's in France and the quality is just superb and she's very accommodating. Anyway, I decided to try my hand at making one - I wear hats all the time and it had to be a little fancy and elegant but functional and warm and it's all of these. I wore it last week and felt just like a princess :-) That's the beauty of getting to a certain age, you can wear what pleases YOU! The turned back brim frames the face and yes, it's quite large!
