My (Accidental) HandMade Life

Let’s get this straight – I am not a DESIGNER. I am simply an INTERPRETER of other people’s designs. Sure, sometimes I just make stuff up as I go along- but I wouldn’t call that designing, would you?

So anyways, last week I asked Anthony David if I could make him a fedora, and he said sure how about a gray one?

The model is cute but the hat, meh

So I ran up to Joann (cause I have about 99 skeins of wool and gray ain’t one) and picked up a skein of Patons in gray. I spent two nights crocheting a fedora and after I felted it…disaster…the brim was too short. My dear husband called it a chick hat. So I had a chick model it for me (my gorgeous niece Sydney) and while she rocked it like the super model she will someday be…I hated it.

I knew that I wanted something more but wasn’t sure what, and then one day, tired from a day of work but inspired nonetheless, I decided to try something. And here is the result:

The first in my Betty Davis eyes collection

 

When we first came to America, my sisters and I would stay up very late watching black & white movies. This hat reminds me of how glamorous  we women used to be Рeven with our skirts below our knees and wearing 3 to 4 layers of clothing in the bedroom we were SEXY.

So I guess you could say that I’m trying to bring glamorous and sexy back:)

Sorry  AD but maybe Algebra could wear the fedora instead?
