New to Me Hat Book
Thanks to Christina and her blog "The rantings of a MAD HATTER wannabe" discovered this great hatmaking book. Christina was very brave and actually ordered it from Amazon Japan. Being more timid, I remembered that Liz of Felt Cafe (another feltmaker) lives in Japan. So contacted Liz who agreed to broker for me, she found the book and sent it to me. Now it is here, and mine, mine, mine!
Of course the Japanese is beyond me, but the pictures are superb and the graphics and patterns are enough to get me through making the hats.
Christina thought it would be fun to work on a hat from the book simultaneously. That sounds really neat to me too. Now we just need to get together on whether we are making the same hat. Anyone else interested in sewing along with us?
This one looks good to me. But am in the finishing stages of a similar shape hat in wool felt so maybe ought to branch out and try a different style. Hmm, choices, choices.
