Crochet Felt Cloche Hats with flowers… another collection

olive green crochet felt hatHello everyone, this is my new collection of crochet felt cloche hats with flowers that I finished a couple of months ago with only the photos needing to be taken before I could post about them & list them in my shops. There were 10 in all originally, but 3 have sold before I even had time to photographed them, so thought I better get a move on, otherwise, I’ll have no record that I ever made them at all.

I’m so pleased that his crochet felt cloche design is proving to be so popular. They were created in the usual way as I’ve written about in previous posts… using 100% pure wool I crocheted the crowns, which are then felted in the washing machine. I crochet the band directly to the felted crown. The flowers are first crocheted, again with 100% pure wool, & then embellished with crochet, embroidery & beads before being attached to the hat. For this collection I also came up with a plaited crochet braid that I’ve attached to each cloche between the band & crown… I think it adds a nice touch…

It always amazes me… I use the same technique… crochet, felt, embellish… yet, no 2 are ever the same…

Over the coming days, I’ll be listing these cloche hats in my Etsy shop

Alvina – Freeform Felted Beanie

Alvina – (a friend to all) is my newest addition to my Esty shop ~ I love this little hat it reminds of the jazzy little numbers those cheeky ladies in the 20’s wore

& is certainly a beanie with a difference – the crown was crocheted then felted & the band crocheted directly onto the crown. A coronet of Freeform crochet encircles the head & the hand-sewn glass-beaded tassels give this unique beanie a subtle look of style & pizazz

Size: 25.5cm (10”) high – Head Circumference: average – 56cm + (22”+)
