Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing
Type Accessory
Sizing Women
Style Eco-Friendly, Cute, Preppy, Traditional, Romantic on

What materials did you use? wool skirt, mans shirt, thread on

What are you most proud of? I really LOVE that berry wool with the beading. on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you use material with beading, watch out, those little beads can break your needles! Measure twice, cut once. I had a hard time with the band, I might go back and put an edging on it. on

This hat looks so good on you :)
