Hi all  Smiley something i have gotten into lately again is hat making and head wear, fascinators and the like... Here is something Im pretty proud of at the moment. A satin leopard print pillbox hat, with rose and pearl accent and feathers, with netting. Ignore the price tag sorry!! This is one of the only pics i have taken of it, and it was after a market show.

I made it using sinamay and shapewell. Although it can be made with many things like plastic containers or cardboard boxes. Hats should not get wet anyway as they lose their shape, so you dont need to worry about water proofing your cardboard, although covering with packing tape would make it stronger!! I just made up the pattern and size, according to what i think looked right. Then cut it out in fabric and the other materials and stitched the leopard pieces together, then lined it in a light gold colour satin and hand sewed it into the inside base. I then hand sewed and glued the extras on top.

Hope you like! Thanks so much for looking, any questions feel free to ask!!  Wink
