The Humble Beret

I am working on lots of berets at the moment as I am opening an online shop. There will be three collections of berets, some to wear for work, some for the weekend and some for anytime you like. I'll keep you posted when it's ready to go. I'm trying different backgrounds for my pictures at the moment . I think the darker one works the best.

Tweed Hat With Ear Flaps

Theres nothing like a wool hat to keep you warm and with added ear flaps this hat will do just that.
It has a vintage buckle at the front and fits into the nape of your neck keeping it nice and snug.
I drafted the patern using a single piece that is cut on the fold of the fabric, and as there was only a small piece left over I made a wallet/purse to match.
Not everyone's cup of tea in shape but it's a good job we all like something different.

Animal Print Bag

It's great to have a bag that can take all the things you need but not weigh you down. This vibrant zebra print in fake fur is so soft and light, weighs very little, has loads of space and with a sturdy webbing strap and hard base can hold a  lap top or i pad plus all your extras.The silk lining gives it a touch of luxury and adds to the overall look.
There's also a beret or Russian style hat to match in the same material if you feel the cold.
This is the very best fake fur I have ever found, so I am very happy I was able to buy it in a few other designs which include a leopard print.

Felted wool and silk clutch bag

As well as all the hat making here at Hat Therapy there are always fabrics that I decide to make in to a bag. Very often there is a hat to go with it but not this time. This clutch bag has been made from some very unusual felted wool, I took a close up of the fabric to try and show the details, it fades from light to dark from top to bottom. Inside I have lined it with a lovely embroidered silk and added a small trim on the front in the same fabric. The metal frame is a gun metal grey and is just the right tone to show off the felt.
