    Hi all, thought I would show off my latest experiment in both worlds...hand made felt and my first blocked beret with said felt.

    took me about 6 hours to get this done...and am slightly worried about pricing here ! firstfelted-Beret.jpg
    It seems a little thick and stiff, but my "model" Gillian said she loved it and would possibly pay around 60.

    Would love some feed back from you all on style and pricing.

    If you dont have a go ................... you will never know

    i like it, presumably you'll get quicker with each hat so hourly rate should even itself out
    perhaps could make flower corsage/brooch for coat lapel to match? x

    Thanks for the response every one. Yes I will get quicker, simply because the next one I try will have 4 layers per side and not 6 !

    This is a really old thread but I'm new and just finding my way around and saw this. I love the colour, hope you're still making these and maybe have a site?

    Looks very good. 60 seems reasonable for a handmade beret. Maybe if you're unsure of what to price, make a couple more first and see how much quicker you are?
