I've been itching to start a new collection of hats for the spring since the holidays, but things were a bit chaotic during my two weeks off. After Ismail and I cleaned the entire house (...ok it was mostly him) I finally had a great space to work in.
I wanted to create a hat that can be worn easily in several different ways depending on the hair style or the outfit. This hat does just that - it can be worn on the crown of your head like a small pillbox, tilted to the side with the bow in the back, or tilted to the side with the bow in the front. The color is a very fall color, but I'm still in love with it. The rust, I think, should be an all seasons color. This hat was blocked on a hand carved block, and is 100% wool.
I think I may have to take this hat with me on my visit to Amy this weekend (but if I don't wear it she will yell at me for over packing....sigh) !
PS: Sorry for the crappy photographs :-/
