Fun with Hats! Pt. 1

Hi guys!  Hopefully everyone is having a wonderful 2011 so far.  I am, that's for sure.  I've been pretty productive so far and enjoyed every moment of it.  Despite the fact I'm already on to 2011 projects, I've got a bunch of oldies but goodies to share with you... from waaaay back in 2010.  Terrible, huh?

One of my favorite projects of 2010 was a crazy hat that I made for The Great Handcar RegattaOver the top and a bit ridiculous, it was absolutely perfect for me.  Best part about it?  It's completely handmade!

Check it out, isn't it silly?!
 Yes, that is a glittery bird on top.

It's even got a secret pocket?  Can you believe it?!

Everyone has fun trying on hats.  Trust me, try it.  You won't be able to help but smile when placing silly hats upon your head.  Buster, one of my favorite bartenders, is such a good sport.

You may have noticed that this listing is Part 1, however, there are two hats in the next photo.  Maybe, if we are lucky, I can convince the boy to blog about his experience in hat-making.  Yep, that's right!  My guy made that super fly Aviator's Helmet... all by himself.

Lots of little details went into these silly hats, so I'll have to comeback later to share them all with you.  I just wanted to give you a little hint of all of the great things to come.  Hope you are having a craftastic week, see you soon! xoxo
