Q&A with DaisyandFlorrie

Meditating asked:
That is so cool and chic. I WANT ONE!
DaisyandFlorrie answered:
Thank you! It's not really hard to make - give it a try! asked:
this is really cute!! How big did you make the hat before felting?
DaisyandFlorrie answered:
Thanks! Usually this kind of felting shrinks anywhere from 30 - 50% - it all depends on the yarn and how much you decide to felt it. Making a swatch and testing it helps to figure out the sizing - there's no exact rule!
