Button Band Trim

Just finished the trim on a charcoal grey/black silk and wool hat. I used several different types of hand dyed silk fabric on the surface of the hat. I am pleased with the added texture the silk provided. The button band was inspired by a black straw hat I saw. The buttons are from my collection of vintage buttons that I received years back from an elderly friend. A new advantage of having numerous tins of buttons is discovering my not quite 3 year old granddaughter thinks they are fabulous.

Charcoal Grey/Black Nuno Felt Hat

I have been working with natural fibers to create fiber art for 30 years. My main focus is on felting and creating felt hoods to create one-of-a-kind millinery hats. I also love make seamless felt garments, and a wide range of felt items. After all, you can make almost anything out of felt.
