Felting?

Question

So I'm making a hat but I want to crochet on some pieces using wool and have those felt. Will this work? Will it make the non wool part of the hat's shape change?

I would felt the appliques first.  They'll shrink.

Hmm well if I do that it will take a couple of months to make lol I'm trying to make my husband a Nudu hat like Billy Gibbons from ZZTop wears. I didn't want to felt the hat part for 2 reasons my husband wanted the hat to not be itchy on the inside and I'm concerned about how much the hat itself will shrink.

I think I will use regular yarn and brush those little boogers lol I'd rather have a root canal than attach all of those doodads and then weave in those ends.

Or you could make one long piece with all those doodads and then attach that to the base.
