After a year (plus) of making hats, my mom has finally decided what her favorite part is: flowers embellishments (though I think she also has a soft spot for finding that perfect sweater in the VV racks).  Here are some of her latest creations…and if you are interested in learning how she does it make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook as we are going to be rolling out some tutorials.

Why should Indiana and Sinatra have all the fun?

Inspired by Vancouver’s rainy weather and my recent trip to Circle Craft Christmas Market, I decided to try my hand at making Fedoras.

Not only do they keep the rain off your face, but if you can pull the brim down to conceal your identity if you are planning to steal a magical ancient artifact or two.

This is only my first generation of hats so please feel free to let me know what you think!
