Felt Bags and Hats by Christl Hansman

Posted by CraftFoxes Staff on Nov 15, 2011

Felting is fiber artist Christl Hansman's favorite medium. She begins most of her unique pieces by knitting an item several times larger than she wants the finished product to be, and then shrinks it via hot water and friction.

Hansman says fondly, "It's like Shrinky Dinks. You think you know what it will look like when it comes out, but it's always a little different; maybe more lofty or thicker or longer. You kind of never know."

This unique cat hat uses bright green eye beads to achieve a charming look.
