A couple of years ago, I was asked to design a hat for a book which is being released this Fall. Sewn Hats, edited by Carla Crim, and published by Wiley Craft, has everything you need to know about sewing your own hats, including patterns and instructions for 35 hats! Because I had never sewn a hat before, Carla jumped in, took the lead and sewed up a French General hat using one of my favorite sun hats as inspiration. Sewn with old French ticking and a red grosgrain ribbon, the hat looks casual enough to wear to the beach or special enough to wear to an outdoor garden party.
To celebrate the upcoming release of this crafty new book, we have a special signed copy of Sewn Hats to giveaway, courtesy of Wiley Craft, as well as a yard of French General ticking and a some ribbon for trim. If you are interested, please leave us your name and a comment about the many hats you wear in your life....and we will choose a lucky winner by Sunday, September 9th...before our Moda Blog Hop and another Giveaway begins on Monday, September 10th!
