Thank you. It's one of a kind with those two fabric combinations. Made just for my friend. You may notice that the inside is made with the same lady bug fabric that I used for my quilt caddy.

What! I'm not the only one who uses the same fabrics over and over? Your lady bugs make the perfect lining for this little denim piece. The red top stitching makes it look so very professional. it's always the little detail that make the difference.

I'm a fabriholic and hate waste. I guess that's 'why I'm partial to scrap quilts. I designed and made the hat stand. Hubby put the screws into it for me, but I cut it our with my jigsaw. The upright turning came for a box of turnings that a carpenter in our little town up the road was going to burn. I asked if I could sort through the box and have some of them and he allowed me to "save" them

The red machine embroidery on the inside along the top of the brim next to the crown says "Hats by Helen"
