Christmas at Hat Therapy


I wanted to decorate the windows this year a little differently so I found some cut out letters on the Internet, sprayed them with floral paints and decorated then with a permanent gold pen.
They had to be drilled with a fine drill bit so I could tie them together with fine ribbon, I then hung them on fish wire.
There are little lights on the raised area where I display my hats etc in the window which twinkle as it gets darker.
The wire wreath I also sprayed purple and added a copper ribbon which really stands out on my black door.
I am very pleased with the overall effect, hope you agree.
I will be having a celebration at the shop on Saturday as it will mark my fifth year of hatting here in Hebden Bridge, so if you are in the area pop in and join me. Cheers.

Two black peach bloom felt cocktail hats that were ordered for weddings this week have now left the shop and will be worn this weekend, but I just managed to get Grace to model them for me before they disappeared for good.
Peach bloom felt is so soft and moulds gently into wonderful shapes, but is particularly good in smaller hats as you can cut really great shapes as you see in the hat with the black and white feather.
I have made a few more felt hats, as this week I was part of a charity fashion show close to home so when they return I will take some pictures and pop them on the blog.

Perfect Print

Animal prints are everywhere this season and I have made quite a few pieces for weddings/cocktails in the last few weeks.
This one which is made from coconut fibers, silk and leopard print felt, sits just over the eye but is so light it's very easy to wear.
You don't feel as though you are peering through a heavy fringe.
Perfect for the rest of the evening when your event starts around 6pm
or you could just wash up in it.!!!
