Things I learned during my first Millinery class.
- Hats take longer than a couple hours to make, particularly if it is your first time making one.
- Thimbles are my finger’s friend.
- I LOVE making hats
- I’m not going to be able to finish my hat until after Christmas. :(
CousinCecily and I spent Sunday with the CFCG and our guest instructor Lynne Taylor from the the GBACG learning how to make a Victorian hat.
Lynne had created two patterns and brought samples of each style for us to pick from. They are gorgeous examples of hats, with the brown one using vintage trims, while the purple bonnet uses trims purchased from modern and local sources.
