What do people listen to while they sew? Do you even listen to anything? Me, if I'm sewing petersham trim or headband I like a good drama on podcast, or (if in UK) The Archers.

But depending on costs I think I'm going to use a model. My friend has two lovely daughters who…See More

"You need to use a little of this inside the hat to begin with....then you put the hood in oven for 30 mins at 80c degrees. Then it would be stiff and ready to steam without issue and trust me you are getting this varnish like felt stiffener cheap!…"
