I wasn't sure where else to post this, so here it sits.

So I've been searching my butt off the last few months trying to find a vintage or vintage style hat that would look decent on me without spending a gajillion dollars.  Finally after getting annoyed at the internet, i decided to just make one.  Hancock Fabrics was having one of their awesome pattern sales, and I found this pattern for hats and matching bags (McCalls M5867) It's a Laura Ashley Design, and not only is  the hat INCREDIBLY adorable, but so easy to make that it only took me an hour from cutting out the pattern to wearing it!


I have a little bitty vintage doily that I found in my stash that I pinned to the hat in the pictures because I haven't quite figured out where to place it yet, so any help with that would be awesome.

Anyway, enough words, on to pictures! (please excuse the stray threads that I haven't clipped...I clipped them off this morning, I was just so excited Cheesy)



There's more info on the hat on my blog thing http://buttonsandbrimstone.blogspot.com/2009/07/crafty-craftin.html

If I could buy the world a coke, then I would say "SCREW YOU WORLD" and go buy more fabric.

Thank you, I wore it out this weekend and I got a few compliments on it. I think I'm going to keep the doily removable, just in case it doesn't match something I'm wearing.
