In another life I would have definitely become a milliner. I love hat making!
I wish people still appreciated the craft of good hat making. Or maybe they do in another place, but I don't see many hat shops popping up around Winnipeg.
I wish I could take lessons on hat making. It's fascinating to me. I love designing and creating them. You may remember the crazy hopheads from a month back and the summer bonnets from this past summer.
I've also made some upcycled winter hats. And I'm currently working on Plankton (for Lane) and Squidward (for Logan) head gear for Halloween.
I would love to apprentice with a hat maker one day. *sigh* In another life...
Anyway, my hatstands arrived today! The one on the right I got awhile ago, but the two blue ones are my new additions! So pretty. I ordered them from Vintage Starr Beads on Etsy. They are going to be so lovely at my upcoming fall/Christmas season craft shows.
Check 'em out. Don't worry, I will post about the middle creation in awhile. As you can already guess, it's part of Lane's Plankton costume.
