Maybe it's because the weather has been so hot and I want it to hurry up and be autumn...
or perhaps because I've been studying Edward Gorey inkwork...
and paging through old copies of The Illustrated Milliner...
but I found myself wanting a hat.
Never mind that it's an impractical thought, who has money for such a thing even if one could find one? So I doodled up a pattern. Then I went by Dorell Fabric. They have this marvelous bin of free remnants and I found two fabrics that matched and made this last night. I think it came out pretty spiffy.
Hat craving... sated... for now.
I'm futzing with the pattern and trying to figure out a way to simplify it a bit. I also want to try to make a brimmed one. Bring on the cold weather. I'm ready.
So what would you make given the time and space?
