Hat Party in the Peaks!

Just one of the many lovely headpieces made by the hens at this hat party in the Peak District.

I love the way she's used the fabric and the clock face - a  simple idea for a cute headband. Top Tip: put a little wire or a pipe-cleaner inside the bow to give it that little 'lift'.

OOOH - those skirts are fab!

A big thankyou to The Courier for their article on my new book The Modern Girl's Guide to Hatmaking.

I really hope that many a hat will be blocked at  kitchen tables around Scotland over the coming months!
