An amazing thing has occurred this month. Three custom work orders through Grandma's Attic. The first was a replacement of a frayed ribbon hat band - of which there is not photo record. The second was the moose patch base ball cap reported in an earlier post. The third is this feather medallion added to a smart velor fur felt. The owner of the hat thought it just need a bit of something on the low brim side. She was not sure what it needed, just something classy and small.
So I came up with this feather medallion. Choose the black rooster tail feathers and the shiny glass beads for their sheen to pick up the sheen in the ribbon band. Wrapped the feathers in luxurious fulled black cashmere to work with the lush velor felt.
The intent was for the flow of the feathers and angle of the medallion to accentuate the lines of the hat brim.
I am pleased with how this worked out and looking forward to hearing the customer response. Hat is at Grandma's Attic awaiting pickup.
