Renaissance Hat

Here is a sneak peek at one of my Renaissance Hats. I am making 3 hats this year, one for my friend Anna, my sister and myself.

Sorry for the poor picture with my messy mess of a hair, it was late and I was trying to take a quick pic before bed.

I used a buckram frame, covered the top with velveteen, adorned the edge with a green and gold cord and stiched on a jewel I had from a chandelier earring (I lost the other earring but kept the other for the gems). I attached a small hair comb underneath to secure and a bit of satin on the underside, since the buckram is stiff and might pull some loose hairs out.

How does it look? I will post more about them once I get them finished :)

Oh here is my first hat I made for a SteamPunk Costume back in October... I can't believe I didnt blog about this :-/
