Project

Cocktail Hat/fascinator

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. More process details on my blog: http://www.pieknits.com/blog/2012/01/millinery-homestyle.html
