Handmade art hat from handwoven fabrics.
Out of stock
This one of a kind handmade cloche hat, made up of patchwork, appliqué row houses will fit a large head size (24″,61cm). The wool fabrics were all handwoven for me by Marrie of Double Whale Handwoven Designs, here in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. It is fully lined with silk.
I chose to use free motion embroidery over the wool fabrics instead of stitching them together where seams won’t be visible, to achieve a very whimsical sort of line drawing effect.
This is part of my zero waste series of hats. It is very time consuming to work with tiny pieces of fabric from my scrap pile, but I think it is important to keep as many textiles as possible out of land fill. It’s also a lot of fun.
If you would like this hat, please measure your head before purchasing. It will be too large for the average head size. To measure your head properly, take a soft tape measure and measure the circumference of your head just above the eyebrows, above the tips of the ears around the largest part of the back of your head. Measure a couple of times to be sure you get the same number.
