Been think that for a long time we needed a thread specifically for those lounge members that dabble in hat making in a non-professional manner, i.e. we aren't making any money from hat making. Here is hoping that others who have made hats will use this thread to post their work. This is only intended to showcase work and not a solicitation of any kind. To kick things off here is a hat that I recently finished for my 7 year old daughter. She was consulted on the specifications and this is truly all her design, including going open crown rather than and bashing and pinches, color, ribbon width, etc. Specifications: Block: 221 Crown: 6 inches Crown Shape: Open Crown (no shaping done other than the dome) Brim Treatment: Underwelt edge finish Brim: 3-7/8 inches before underwelt; 3-1/2 inches after underwelt Size: 6-5/8 Material: Rabbit Fur Color: Purple Ribbon: Gray (vintage 1920's/1930's stock) Ribbon Width: 7/16 inch Note the bow is on the right side of the hat since this is a women's hat; even though in modern hats for women they can wear the both in pretty much any location.
