Hello,
I want to see how y’all have “decorated” your felt hats! It’s one of those things that seems to be unique for the individual or time period portrayed, so people are bound to get creative with it. Here’s my hat, a bit more broken in since my hat-making tutorial.

This is the second round hat I wore over the years reenacting the Rev. Rifleman. The first one flat wore out, this replacement is not as good a quality as #1 but it worked. The thread did ask for "embellishments". That is what mine has. It may not be perzactly pc but it is personalized to my taste. There is a silver powder horn, a Masonic emblem, a Christian cross, a flint lock, a pewter turtle peace symbol and a tiny tomahawk. The white fur seen on top is a bit of buck's tail from the first deer I ever shot with an ml. I am especially proud of the Sid Bell silver powder horn. I won it in the first ml rifle competition I ever entered. I won it for having the lowest score of any of the shooters who had fired in all 15 targets. Lotsa problems with my hunka junk CVA flint, so-called, 'Kentucky' rifle. But, i stuck with it. I think that was in 1970.

This, my favorite hat, is embellished with over ten years of sweat, campfire smoke, blood, dust, mud, hay and mold. I’ve thought about getting rid of it several times before but just can’t do it. I’m wearing this hat in a short video I posted on this forum a while back shooting a flintlock Fusil de Chasse.
