A little WIP of a hat

January 23, 2017   /   byCarla  / Categories :  Feeds
So I bought a fancy planner and ignored it for almost three weeks. I felt a sense of overwhelming dread due to personal reasons, and other things in my life.
A friend asked how my hat was going. My hat. That's a simple nice not overwhelming project I can work on.

I am so happy I took millinery classes last year. Hat making is such an awesome skill, and because I love hand sewing, calming for me.

I might use this fabric for the hat, I am not sure. I believe a friend gave it to me when I started my first millinery class.

Have any of you made a hat?
