A good friend of mine has made me a super head block, unfortunately, it has come up a little too small, what is the best way of enlarging the block?
Thanks Megan, I had thought of using an old felt hat to cover it which would bring it up to the right size, but I am concerned about how to fix it onto the block and still be able to remove it if necessary. What would the fixing method be?
Ruth just use strips of old newspaper which you wet and wrap evenly round the existing block of choice - use you tape measure to check and verify that it comes up to the right head size then WRAP adapted block with cling film 2 to 3 times and bob's your uncle.
I had a situation similar to yours where a client of mine with a 30inch head and not much money needed a school hat made for them and it worked just fine.
That is the easiest way
All the best
Thanks, Edith, that sounds like an interesting thing to do. I will try that too
Please do not wrap newspaper on the TOP of the block....just the sides keeping everything level with the top!
Just in case ....all the best
