New Hats are on there way

I love taking old sweaters and turning them into something new. Hum lets see... a hat. I've been working on some new hats for winter. First I take the sweater and Felt it in the washer and dryer. Then check it out and see where the hat wants to come from. Then I take the hat and start needle felting onto it. Then I line it with fleece. Ta-da... there finished!

Here are three that you get to see first before I post on Etsy.
This Blue hat w/ the Unicorn on it isn't felted. Its Acrylic and Wool blend. The other two hats are.

So what do you think?
