Hat from a greyish cotton shirt, decorations of scrap satin ribbon,bias binding, roses from silk shirt scraps from swap, leaves from parts of another shirt, feathers left over from paying work.  My own pattern, inspired by hats of the 1910s:

This is so cool.  Very well done.  I love the flowers and the style of the hat...and the fact that it's recycled.  Just awesome.

That is so cute!  You are so lucky to be able to wear hats well.  I love hats, but I always look very strange in hats.  I've tried all sorts of shapes and I never look good.
Great job!

I like this very much--the style, the fact it's recycled, and that you made your own pattern.
The bottom photo looks as if you might have sewed pleats or tucks into the top of the brim; if so, that must have been hard to do on a curve.

Thank you!  What might look like pleats are just concentric rings of stitching.  The brim is made from three layers of fabric, for stiffness, and the stitching  keeps them together and adds stiffness, as well as a decorative element.  Smiley
