I have finished my first project in my hat-making class. The project was to make a hat for the upcoming opera which is The Magic Flute. The hat was for a beautiful female bird character. It was so much fun! I didn’t come up with the idea, my teacher did, but I was the one that got to make it and put it together. I got to makes lots of wool felt for it. After making the felt, I sewed felt and fabric pieces to a curved head piece. I also curled big ostrich feathers. Here’s the end piece. Isn’t it beautiful and fun? It’s supposed to be like a bird’s comb with a fun twist.
