I designed and constructed this hat for a friend of the family's daughter. They're taking her to the Kentucky Derby for her 29th birthday and had an embarrassingly bare hat for her to wear. My had name slipped their mind until the last minute, I was happy to help! I hadn't had much experience in haberdashery but I'm always thrilled to explore new creative outlets. I really enjoyed this test of time and talent and I can't wait to work on something like this again.
The hat was provided by the Stubles. All the decorations were either courteous of the very generous Emily Hart Bridal or purchased at discounted prices at Hobby Lobby and Michael's.
Total out of pocket: $47
