'Old Hat'
I'm really enjoying making these felted 1920's style cloche hats as I can play with wool and also have a good excuse to go to junk shops,charity shops ,vintage and antiques markets sourcing bits to decorate them with.So I have a collection of old buttons and beads, costume jewelry,pieces of old lace and flowers from hats and lots more!


New hat,scarf and wristwarmers pattern for  the Arnside chunky wool.

I should have this printed and available to buy before Christmas.
