A couple more hats…

I finished a couple more hats today, I think these will be the last for Weyfest as I am out “third manning” with the ambulance service tomorrow as part of community first responder CPD. I plan to do some more felting on Friday but doubt it will be dry in time to take to Weyfest on Saturday.

A bit more conventional than the last batch aren’t they?

Thank you all for your suggestions of what animal this hat might be:

Believe it or not I had a fox in mind when I started it, just goes to show I should always refer to photos ;o)

It was interesting that your opinions closely followed the split in my household – I thought it looked like a donkey while Mr TB thought it was a deer. Some of the suggestions for the monster/frog hat were a bit off the wall though – green squirrels?!! :o)

I finally got around to framing a couple of pieces today as well, I’m pleased with how these turned out and I still have another piece of dyed felt so will probably make a third hanging… something else to add to the ever growing to-do list!

Hats for Weyfest

Next weekend sees the return of our annual local music festival to Farnham, just a few miles down the road from me. I plan to attend this with the West Surrey Guild of Spinners Weavers and Dyers so have been making a selection of hats that I hope will go down well with the festival goers….

I have come up with names for most of them but wonder if you can help me identify the animal at the bottom of the page. I had an animal in mind when I started making this hat but it doesn’t look anything like it. Mr TB and I have different ideas about what species it is now but rather than sway your thoughts by saying what we think I thought I would solicit your ideas first….

Am I a monster or a frog?
