Angela Davis Hat on Etsy

So here's a new hat I made yesterday that I just posted on my etsy shop. I stitched an image of Angela Davis on the back. I am now addicted to making these. What do you think?

Inspiration Monday

Lately, I have been very much inspired by Fall. I love the changing colors of the leaves, the brisk weather allowing me to wear jackets and hats (I love these!) and the start of the academic year, signifying a new beginning. So in keeping with that, I have begun to make hats out of recycled or, just too small to make anything else, pieces of fabric. It's been fun, a new venture in my sewing and also something I could accomplish in a day. Having an 18 month old, I have had to work in a piece meal manner, doing a little at a time. This is a new way to work for me as I used to have big chunks of time pre-kids. I often get very impatient, not wanting to see the end result over the course of a week, but right now!!! The hats give me that immediate sense of gratification. More to come on my etsy shop!
