What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have the patience to do handsewing and embroidery, it's a good project to do while watching TV.

My first glance, I thought it was crochet. You trick me. I went back and saw it was sewing. I can do that. Lovely hat and lovely pattern. Several weeks ago I saw a hat that looked liked this without the mirrors and it was crochet. I do not plan to learn crochet or knitting. Your hat is an inspiration to my start up millinery business. I saw a lady at a funeral with a hat on that I have been trying to duplicate. It will take time but I have plenty of it. I play with paper until I get the right design.

Thank-you for your post. This hat took a while to make, but it was fun to do. I sometimes make a pattern or model from paper or cheap fabric, but don't always have the patience for that and just use the real materials right away. I admire the art of millinery and hope that you have good luck and success with your business. Best wishes!
