I've been collecting a lot of vintage material lately and decided to use it for a new fedora design. It took me 2 nights and a lot of scrap fabric to get a shape I was finally happy with but it was worth all the effort. Both are made with vintage wool plaid. The first one has 1 peacock tail feather and 3 chest feathers and the second one has 3 turkey feathers with iridescent tips. I added a furry plush fabric to the inside brim of the houndstooth one to give it a wintery look. I love them both so much!

These are sweeet! I would love to be able to make something like this. Not that I would wear one but they are really neat. Great work! did you use a pattern or just make it up on your own?

I LOVE hats! And hats with feathers... well don't get me started. These are awesome. I'm absolutely in awe of anything involving millinery...

Thanks everyone! And yes, the pattern is my own. I usually just start pining shapes of fabric to my head until I get a general idea of a shape, then sew them together, then make modifications from there. These are both version #6!
