Dad Hat

Fabric from B. Black & Sons and Beverly Fabrics 

I made my first hat! It turned out a little wonky, but ok.

The wool from B. Black & Sons was luscious green wool that felt thick enough for this fedora, but it doesn't have the structure that fedoras are supposed to have.

You can see it looks a lot better on dad than me, and that was the point. I had to wear dad's frat shirt for the picture (from a server I had at a pub later that night: "why are you wearing a shirt in russian?").

I lurrrrve the lining. It's this fantastic silk/cotton blend that was much easier to work with than regular silk. I want it in every color.

Watch out, everyone! Expect more gift hats!
