Who doesn't love a good hat? My dear friend Alina and I got together this past Saturday to share some beverages and craft....we made mint juleps and watched the most exciting 2 minutes in sports!
My hat was vintage that I purchased years ago for a high school play. I hadn't done much to it since then and thought it was a great excuse to give it new life! I used tulle and handcrafted the flower. I think it turned out rather lovely!
We did not have a pre-existing base for Alina's hat, but as we were watching the Derby coverage she was drawn to the smaller, chic looking ones. I found a shoulder pad in my crafting stash that would serve as the perfect base. She looked lovely!
Next year, I'm throwing a derby party....this was too much fun!
