Eugenia Kim, milliner extraodinaire, whose career took off after she fashioned a red-feathered cloche to hide a botched haircut, has written a book -- Saturday Night Hat (available December 5, 2006), that contains fifteen hat how-tos and fifteen trim how-tos that cover the basics of millinery. This book is filled with illustrations, easy-to-follow diagrams, and photos of her whimsical Deco-inspired creations such as:

     The Beret (I'm doing this one first!)
    The cloche
    The cocktail hat
    The Pillbox
    The Fedora
    The Newsboy
    The Sun hat

I don't know about you, but I'm a novice to hat-making (other than knitting or crochet) and there is a handy glossary in the back filled with hat lingo that clarifies everything. This is a fantastic way to accessorize Fall/Winter sewing, knitting, crocheting that will make you a hard act to top!

I preordered this book, and am so excited for it to come, so I can try my hand at a fedora!

i just got this book today, and it is SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!! i love all of the hats, and can't wait to start making some, but was a little sad when i looked at the fedoras, and saw that the patterns were really just accessories to add to a fedora that has already been made.  i wanted to make a fedora all by myself, but when i think of it, it would be kinda hard... oh well Smiley the book itself is AMAZING!!!! LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!

Let's grip it and rip it.

This has to be my favorite diy book that i have bought! I have made a bunch of hats out of here and get compliments on them all the time. My favorite hats are the mini beret and the drawstring beret, i love the way they flop around. I wish craftsters had a board for just hatmaking because ever since i bought this book i have become addicted to it.  Cheesy

 I would like to have a board for hatmaking, too...
How do we petition craftster to get one? Do you know?
