Miniature Hats Updated

I worked on two of my hats last night while watching tv in the bedroom. I can't really work in my work area with feathers because of my cats.
The large brimmed hat with the brown ribbon now looks like this..

I'm pleased with the brown. This would be the style and color hat I would wear if I was going to the Kentucky Derby. lol

The smaller woven hat now looks like this..

I'm not really happy with how it turned out so I'll probably add flowers or something to it. Its just too gray...and dull.

The cowboy hat I made was quite by accident. I was making a tan leather bowler hat that ended up being smushed before it was completely dry and stiff. I just worked with the dents and reshaped it more like my brothers cowboy hat.

They are both so pretty! Love the feathers. My favorite is the brown one! Yep, I'd look spiffy at the Kentucky Derby in that myself!

Hi Anna. Thank you for popping by to my blog. I love you hats and its been good to see how they are made.
Really love your blog too! I will keep calling back.
Love to bits all your finds at the yard sales and the wine boxes are fantastic for storing mini making supplies. Going to look on ebay and see if i can find any. But great treasures inside and wish i had been there too to snap them up.
