I knew I wanted a vintage-style hat to wear to my wedding, to go with my 40's style dress. None of the vintage shops in town turned up anything, and while there were options on the internet, not only is it hard to tell what something is going to look like on you when it's displayed on a bald, plastic, head, I am also very picky about my hats. (They were all also very expensive)
So after some research into what I wanted, and realizing I couldnt get the "real" hat making materials I needed around here, I improvised!
I crocheted and felted a tiny diamond-shaped pillbox hat (I felted the hat into its pointed shape) and added a huge flower, a white feather clip, and a big bow made out of Russian veiling.
I had so much fun with it I'm thinking about making a bunch and selling them on Etsy!
