I LOVE mini hats like these.  Do you sell them?

I make Elegant Gothic Lolita goods on commission, and sometimes I just make things for the online store!

Those are fantastic...love, love, love them.   Cheesy  I so wish hats were still the rage since I would wear them every day.

Can I ask what book inspired these?  Is that cheeky?  Wink

Does it include instructions, or did you already know how to make hats?

I love your hats - they're stunning! 

Thanks for putting up the pics


For the first hat. I figured out how to make them on my own. They're from images in a book called "Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from La Mode Illustree"  Is an awesome re-print of old wood cuts. Beautiful stuff.

For the two tricorns I've been making them for a while, so I just do what ever comes to mind.

I've been making has now for 2 years just a few days ago! Cheesy

I love them also Cheesy
Take a look at my profile Wink

Those are fantastic...love, love, love them.   Cheesy  I so wish hats were still the rage since I would wear them every day.

I hope that hat will continue to become more "the rage" again. instead of just about what someone's hair looks like.

Excellent work. Working on steampunk accessories...?

Thanks, I really make my hats for all different styles. but these could fit into the steampunk genre. Wink

hehe, I don't get to post that often any more, but I got laid off from my day time job, so you may just see me posting more Cheesy

Im (kinda) sorry to hear that, I only say kinda because I cant wait to see more of your hats!! They are beautiful  Grin

hehe yeah, both a blessing and a hardship... The house payment thing is killing me, but I'll work on my own little small business and hope to grow more Wink

those are absolutely AMAZING!!  you definately have a gift for creating!

Thanks! I do try to make some eye catching and original designs Cheesy

those are quite fabulous! :0)
what is the name of the book, if you don't mind my asking. I'm working on a production of A Doll's House at the moment and that certainly sounds like it'd make for a great reference!
just kidding, i see you've already posted that. thanks though, and again, great work!

They all look amazing! Great job Smiley

It is better to destroy than to create what is meaningless.

I love these hats! I wish we could all go back to a time when hats of this type were socially acceptable. Thanks for the inspiration!
