    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    Print and cut out the template for the pixie hat which is available as a separate pdf file for this idea. Spread a piece of carded wool – slightly larger than the hat template – onto the needle felting foam pad. Needle felt the actual outline of the hat template with a felting needle.
    Guide step %d
    Felt the wool tightly by pushing the felting needle up and down repeatedly. NB: Lift the wool away from the needle felting foam pad every now and again to avoid the wool being needle felted onto the pad.
    Guide step %d
    Decorate the needle felted hat with dots/stripes which are felted onto the hat using the same procedure as the one used for the hat.
    Guide step %d
    Make a tight fold at the edge of the hat as shown. This is where the pixie's face will be once the hat is assembled and finished.
    Guide step %d
    Assemble the hat and felt the sides together. Use your fingers to work/part the wool fibres on the inside of the hat so that the hat remains hollow.
    Guide step %d
    Use your hands and a felting needle to form the hat into your desired shape.
