The pink monstrosity is a 'life-in-the-bubble hat.' It's a figure-it-out-as-you-go engineering challenge. Hence, the millinery wire poking up. The hat is too heavy to support itself!
Whereas, the blue-ish hat merely needs to dry. It is the final style from Stunning Hats Class, taught by felted hat master, Zsofia Marx. We had our follow-up class on Sunday. However, I was unable to attend because I was visiting family. I'll watch the recording when Zsofia posts it.
