Hats : Going Victorian 2


After the Victorian hat I made for a customer on DaWanda (the above picture), that was based on a traditional costume in the east of The Netherlands, Inger wanted me to make her a hat like the one above, but then from her own felted fabric. So she made a beautiful piece full with poppies and I found a fitting lining in dark purple for it.

I used lovely dark green woollen ribbon for the ties and two beautiful polymer buttons from Leina to finish it off. Now I hope Inger likes it .....

And what's even the best part of it; she paid me with a gorgeous purple and green felted scarf !!!!
