So shortly after last thanksgiving my great-grandmother died, she left money to her church to rebuild the kitchen. So the church decided that since they've recently finished rebuilding the kitchen that they'd invite all of the family members to attend service to inaugurate the new kitchen in time for their thanksgiving dinner.

My great-grandmother was a lover of hats (she had at least 20) so the women in my family are all donning hats for the occasion as a nod to her. Sadly i have a large head and can't wear any of her old hats, so off i went a shopping and for less than $5 i made this chapeau, hope you like :3





i know the pictures are rather grainy (i took them on my phone for lack of a camera) and i look thrilled to death in the first picture xD but it was taken when i was about to nod off to sleep~

the materials were,
1/2 yard of brown sparkly netting
1 fake 'fall' rose
1/2 yard of wired ribbon
1 large woven doll hat (base)
glue

hope ya'll enjoy~

I love the hat.  I have a party at church that requires a hat, but I'm too chicken to do it.  You did a great job!

Such a pretty hat! I love the way it sits on your head. It's really elegant and autumn-y.

I love it, and i'm always really impressed with people that can make hats, and then wear them, and then look stylish.
