Welcome any and all fiber artists! In this tutorial, you will follow step by step photos paired with detailed instructions on your way to learning how to make a Rainbow Witch or Wizard hat. There's no knitting, crocheting, or sewing - just soapy water and a little magic! The felted witch hat is an intermediate level felting project, so experience with felting is suggested.

Materials & Tools
Scissors

4-5 Old Towels

Returns and exchange details

♥ REFUNDS – If you have any problems with your hat upon receiving it, please contact me right away. Since most of my hats are made-to-order or custom items, returns and exchanges are accepted on a case by case basis. While I try to do everything I can to ensure you are receiving a “perfect” hat before it is shipped, mistakes can still happen. If I have made an obvious error or there is a flaw in my work I will most certainly fix or replace the item if deemed necessary. Essentially, my goal with returns is to reach a conclusion that both parties are happy with, so reach out if you have any issues.

♥ SIZING - Returns and exchanges will not be issued for orders where the customer provided incorrect sizing information. Customers should contact me with any questions about sizing and provide me as much information as possible at checkout (including a note of the measured numerical size of your head). Sometimes special exceptions will be mad here as well so please contact me.

♥ COLORING - Not all monitors and electronic devices display colors in the same way. While I do my best to accurately depict the item's color in my photos there may be some discrepancy. If the item you receive is a different shade/color in person then you thought it was based on the posted photos and you want to return the item please contact me as you will only be eligible for an exchange or store credit. (Some exceptions might be made on a case-by-case basis at the shop owners discretion so please contact me.)

♥ HANDMADE SPECIFICS - Each item I make is made entirely by hand. There is also some randomness to the wet-felting process. This means that the items I sell will be very similar (but not an exact copy) of what is pictured in each listing. I cannot make two pieces that are exactly alike. If the item you receive is different in size, shape, or general appearance in person then you expected based on the on-line photos and you want to return the item please contact me as you will only be eligible for an exchange or store credit. Please see my shop policies for further details, some exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis at the shop owners discretion.

♥ SHIPPING DAMAGES AND LOSSES – Refunds will not be given due to damage or loss during shipping. This includes the package being damaged during transit or damaged, stolen, or lost after it arrives at your door. While I will do everything I can to help you locate your package should it become lost in transit I ultimately have no control over the package when it leaves my hands. If you are concerned about the safety of your package please contact me about purchasing additional shipping insurance.

♥ EXCHANGE SHIPPING - If an exchange is to be made the customer is responsible for paying the shipping for the item they are returning and the shipping of the new item that will be sent out to them. An invoice for the shipping will be sent and no new items will be shipped until the invoice is paid.

♥ REFUND TIMING - Full monetary refunds will be issued 1-3 business days after the returned product is received or as stipulated in any agreements reached by the customer and the shop owner. It may take several more days for the refund to appear in your bank or on your credit card depending on your banking institution's own policy (of which I have no control over).

♥ EXCHANGE TIMING - If an exchange is being made I will not make or ship the new item until I receive the old undamaged and unaltered item (unless stipulated). I will let you know how long it will take for the new item to be made and shipped. It can take as long as two months in some cases depending on the complexity of the item and the number of open orders I have.

♥ FAIR WARNING - DO NOT SIMPLY RETURN YOUR ITEM WITHOUT FIRST CONTACTING ME. Items sent back to me without my consent may be held without refund, return, or exchange or may simply be sent back without alteration, repair, refund, credit, or exchange using the least expensive shipping method possible.

Additional policies

CUSTOM ORDER POLICY
If you would like me to make a hat of your own design, or a hat that is not already listed in my shop in some form, my custom order policy applies to your order. Please read the following items carefully. They are the rules that will define our creative partnership.
1. DESCRIBE IT - Though I have made many hats this does not mean I have any special insight into the sort of hat you may want. It is up to you to give me as many details as possible. Photos and drawings can really help too. Do not take for granted that I know what you want or that the vision in my head of your hat is the same as the vision in your head. The more details you give me the more likely it is that you will be happy with the result.
2. THINK TWICE - If you tell me that you want me to use my own judgment, to put my own spin on it, or to otherwise exercise my creativity I urge you to consider carefully what you are asking. There is risk in granting another person creative control. Often people have at least some sense of what they want and it is better to think carefully and tell me what you want rather than risk me making a hat that you might not like.
3. ONE HAT RULE - Each custom order represents a single hat. This means that when you have given me the full hat description and we have agreed that I can begin I will make you one hat. A second hat (a second attempt) will not be made. If you have forgotten to mention some details and your hat does not have those details this rule is still in force. If you do not like my creative decisions after telling me to use my own judgement this rule is still in force.
4. KNOW THE RISK - This is a creative process. That means that I will likely not be able to produce the exact hat you have envisioned. I will do my best based on the information you give me and the limitations of the felting process. But ultimately you as the customer are taking a creative and financial risk by ordering a custom hat. As mentioned, I will attempt to make your hat only once. Any creative dissatisfaction you have with the hat will not be enough of a reason for me to redo the hat or issue any sort of recompense.
5. NO REFUNDS/EXCHANGES/SECOND CHANCES - Because this hat is being made according to your own specific designs and specifications I will be unable to accept the hat for refund , exchange, or store credit. Some exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis, especially if there is some evidence that there was a failure in the craftsmanship of the hat, so please contact me if you have any concerns or questions. Otherwise this is a permanent transaction so proceed with caution.
6. REPAIR AND REBLOCKING - Your hat may not be eligible for my free reblocking program depending on the complexity of the hat. Repairs may also be especially difficult if your hat is especially complex. Please contact me if you have any problems along these lines and I will tell you if I can do anything to restore your hat and what the next step would be.
I do not mean for this process to be unnecessarily complicated. I really do want to make you something that you will be proud to wear and to own. But after several customers have attempted to take advantage of me and my custom hat making I have had to put these new stricter rules in place. This is so that I can continue to have the resources I need to make you the high-quality and interesting hats that you have come to expect. If you have any questions or concerns at all please contact me.
