The material needed was carded wool, a felting needle and a support pad made of open cell foam (sponge)
The top of the hat is being formed. I used a sunhat to measure out a suitable size. Needle felting is a procedure, where you press the needle multiple times through the wool, making the wool fibers to attach and bind themselves together
The first of six rectangular shaped wool pieces is added to the top. These will afterwards be connected on the sides to make them into a hat.
