Today I finished my very first actual hat. I have been making fascinators etc, but this is where I really want to concentrate.

Hope you like it, I would love your opinions.

That's fantastic! I love the colours, especially of the check and the feathers together.
How does it stay on a head? It looks on the small side, is there a clip?

This is lovely, and a very cool shape. Did you use a hat block?

Thanks all

It can be attached to a band, or a comb, I havent done yet as Im not sure which I want.

It was not made on a block, It is a buckram and wire frame...Im hoping to pick up some hat blocks soon..

That's so cool!  I have no idea how to make a hat, but it looks like it would be complicated.  You did a great job.  It's lovely.

Very pretty!  And it looks flawless, I'm impressed!  Are those hard to make?  I would like to try making something like that, but it seems rather daunting.

This is brilliant.  I think tartan can be a hard pattern to work with but this is fantastic.
