ooobop! Lucky Hat

ooobop lucky hat

Self-drafted hat, using cotton velvet from stash, fully lined with poly lining and decorated with a ‘yoyo’  of self fabric with a central statement button. The ‘Lucky’ button was found in a biscuit tin by my daughter, at a vintage fair we attended last year.

I’m so glad it found a special home!

And I’m so glad I have now got a hat that actually fits my big head… and keeps my ears toastie!

I’m hoping this hat will work for both modern and vintage ensembles. Though I might just have to make a few more in different colours!

It really only took a couple of hours, including the hand stitching and decoration.
