Description

Crocheted and felted (wool) with a crocheted band, flower yoyos, jade beads, and vintage (well, two of them) buttons
pattern for the hat can be found on raverly, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/beacon-street-cloche , though I made adjustments to the pattern.

This hat was inspired by the 1920’s and 30’s but with a more modern flair. There were sooo many dresses I found on ModCloth that I wanted to design for so I choose my favorites. I think they would all pair wonderfully with this hat. Links below.

      Thank you! This is the second Burda inspired project I’ve done, but only one I’ve posted (so far) so I was really nervous about how it would be accepted

      Well, there was no need of you being nervous. You did a fantastic job. Also, thanks for “liking” my Facebook page. I noticed your picture under “People who like this” section on the page today.
