Make a Hat Day - Hat is finished

Me and Me Hat
Originally uploaded by Glorious Hats
And oh I am loving it. It came out rather turban like, fits beautifully, is very comfortable. Am so pleased with it. Wore it to town today for a wear trial.

Was surprised at how using the single layer of fine wool was so flexible and comfortable, folded the corners forward, then hand stitched them down yesterday afternoon.

Finished the rose while watching NCIS and another show after that which I do not recall. Did make the cabbage rose as a brooch so it can be removed.

The veining on the leaves is machine freemotion work, done before leaving the studio yesterday afternoon.

This turned out so well, am considering making others along this line, for light fall wear.

Thanks to everyone who followed my efforts yesterday on Make a Hat Day. I have never started and finished a hat in one day before this adventure.

Blowing kisses and Extending Big Hugs to you for the support and encouragement.
