Hats off to Pam
Pam sent this link to one of her hat patterns that’s up now on eBay — I love this lampshade style, very cute!
She’s also got a glove pattern up now that I’m extremely tempted by (but, sadly, it’s not my size). For some reason I want to make brightly-colored ultrasuede gloves (as if I didn’t have enough projects piled up — I’m like the Collyer brothers of projects at this point).
I haven’t made very lots of hats; I made one from a modern vogue pattern in chiffon, to wear to a wedding once, and I’ve embellished a few felt hats (and I’m very sad that Manny’s Millinery supply has either closed or moved; any individual have a good source for premade felt blanks?). I have been tempted by hat-making, certainly, but I’ve not yet reached the point where I need to invest in hat blocks. Yet. I’m sure that day will come!
