A hat made for my husband’s relative who is going through chemotherapy.
This project was horrendous. I started using a pattern from Weekend Designer for a cloche and it came out awful before I could see that I needed tear back all of my work. So I did tear it almost back to nothingness and heavily redesigned it to avoid tearing back any more. This was a big learning process as I’ve never made a hat before. But I must admit that it is discouraging that this hat took me 2.5 MONTHS when I can make a dress hand stitched in 2.5 days.
