What are you most proud of? Finding an alternative to $100+ hat block laying around the house (used a glass candle lid!). Also that the whole thing just turned out. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start looking around your home for items what would make a cool hat shape! Also, I made this without actual professional millinery grade items, (fabric store buckram, floral wire instead of millinery wire, etc.) So don't be intimidated to try it with what you can get.
