Big Flower Hat
It's been awhile since I've made one of these, and since the last of them got sold over the holidays, I decided to try making a new one. I had forgotten how to work the flower into the hat, though, so it took a little experimenting before I finally got it right. The purple and green combination had always been one of my favorites. There are also some gold silk tussah accents and some white fuzzy popcorns. The gold color of the silk is natural, as tussah silk is gathered wild and usually found on oak trees where the tannin in the leaves turns the silk gold.
