wow - nice work.  I make hats, but I've never developed a pattern.

nice fabric choices
I made some of these a couple of years ago.  I put the water absorb things in sections, like every 6 " and then sewed a seam.

very nice work!

I enjoy marbling and I took 2 classes:  one for fabric and one for paper.
I've made many items with marbled paper and fabric.  I've made some jewelry with the marbled fabric and paper.  I also made hats, ties, messenger bags and purse with the fabric. 

I would have never thought about marbling leather.  Thanks for sharing your creative pieces.

Great hat!  I have made all sorts of hats.  i understand the need for a little crease.  I call the part where you sew the top to the crown - sewing in the round.  It looks like you are great with this skill.  I sometimes get off the round.  I usually line hats, but it's not really necessary.  I didn't realize how much difference it makes in sewing around the brim.  Some patterns use this step and others do not.

I have looked before on craftster for hats and mostly, have seen crochet hats.  Crochet hats are great, but i like to see hats made from fabric.

hi,  has anyone ever made a sombrero?  I"m looking for some instructions and I have read a few websites.  i would like to use all fabric, but most of the instructions involved paper.  thanks

Good comments on double needles.  I don't know if my machine uses a double needle or not.  You have challenged me to get out my machine manual.

The comment about mistakes is oh - so true.  Your seam ripper can be a good tool.

Yes, I hope your mother feels better.  Maybe she will feel better, if she see you get started with some sewing,  Please tell her that depression can be treated.  I have a book:  Crafting to Heal.  The front cover is a quilt.  The book is definitely inspiring.  I've heard folks say that a trip to the fabric store is cheaper than therapy.  For myself, going to Hancock's can definitely lift my spirits after hard day at work.

Do the "food" stuffings begin to cook when heated?  thanks.

Your charm bracelets are charming!  Nice creations!  It takes lots of patience with so many charms.  Thanks.
