This hat was especially fun to make. It features felted wool with a deep purple chenille band. The embellishment is a grouping of colored feathers perfectly set off with an Italian pewter medallion and beads. This has a larger crown than most of my hats to give great effect to the feathers.
These are some of the hats that I have been crafting for the upcoming Crocker Art Museum’s Holiday Show. I have been doing a lot with flame sculpted fabric this season as is evident by the flowers enhancing both the read and purple hats. The black hat and the turquoise hat have vintage applicaques as well as ribbons. The fabrics on my hats range from cotton to wool to chenille and are all adjustable for a perfect fit.
