grosgrain ribbon, a little peach rose, vintage forget-me-nots and black seam binding on the edge of the brim.
I made this flower with some lovely vintage stamens.
It is made from chocolate wool felt+a big burgundy rose+raspberry-green ombre velvet leaves.
This was made from an upcycled wool skirt, and hat. I posted a grey cloche before. After that posting, I absolutely wore it to death. I didn't fancy pitching it, that's not really my style, unless totally neccessary. So I cut it up, inverted the material and composed a large flower for this hat.
I saw a hat in a Victorian trading co. catalog: it was black with a big cluster of gorgeous velvet violets. I have adored that hat for a while now... so I thought that it was time to create one. This hat is made from black wool+some lovely purple velvet violets that I found on ebay.
