    help: resizing a felt hat

    is this an easy thing to do? i have a felt hat with a leather liner. it is currently about 1/2 size too small. can this be resized easily? do i have to take out the leather strip first, or can it be done all at once since it is just a small size adjustment?

    thanks

    Out of curiosity, what type of felt hat is it? What is the # quality of the felt? I ask because in trying to resize a hat before I would advise to buy a new hat.

    Re: help: resizing a felt hat

    I have reshaped hats but not resized. I think you need a contraption that goes inside the hat and pushes it out. But sure you have to the base

    Sorry... About last post.. Meant to say I'm sure you need to stream the base while stretching it

    Contraption? Like a head?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
