I used this mini top hat in a photo shoot with the Bunny lovey dovey over at the old Jupiter Hollow blog. I referred to this as "my first ever hat".
In fact, it was the first hat I made attempting proper millinery techniques after Rhiannon gave me my first millinery book. I had made a few costume hats before that using more innovative techniques (staples and cardboard, for example).
Staying with Mum on my recent holiday, I was reunited with some of my first ever sewing projects, two lovely mice made from kits.
What do you know? They both have cute little hats!
"Gary Groom" has a darling top hat for his big day, and I love the patched-up cap that "Conkers" is sporting.
Are these my two real first ever hats? Maybe...
