Beltrami County Fair 2009

OK so when I got to the Fair after judging and saw this, I was thrilled.

Refashioned from Vest into Hat

What could be better than being awarded Best of Show and $10 Gift Certificate to GoodWill store?

Why seeing the joy in your 6 year old protege's eyes and hearing it in her voice as she shows you her Blue Ribbon Award for her entirely hand sewn pillow.

Hand Sewn Pillow - by IS Six

Well done and a big shout out to "Is Six"

Congratulations to both you and "6"...fantastic Job ! I think "6" shares my color sense (but has much nicer stitching) .

Congratulations to you both!

I love that hat so much!!!! Is it for sale in your Etsy shop still?

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Lauren, so sorry that hat is not for sale. It is one I made from scraps and a recycled vest and wear as my own winter hat. There are some of the big flowers to put on similar or other hats in my etsy shop however.

Though with your sewing skill, you may prefer to make a similar hat and flower yourself. If you want specifics, let me know and I'll put together a tutorial.

I do have plans to make some similar hats for this fall winter, but have not completed them yet. Thanks for spurring me on to do them.
