Mrs. POTTER HAT


While shopping in Laura Ashley I spotted these two little figures handcrafted in wool felt by women in Nepal. They are Peter rabbit and Mr. Fox from the book Peter Rabbit by English writer Beatrix Potter.
I was totally inspired by them and I just loved the idea to put them together in a hat!
I am so pleased with the result!
One of my fav designs!

This is the "Mrs. Potter" Hat.

A medium size "Smartie" cap base, hand blocked from high quality red wool felt.
This lovely hat is decorated with a dark brown fine leather hand sculpted swirl, with two small felt animals: a fox chasing a rabbit and it is finished with small colorful felt bolls hand sewn to the base.
This gorgeous piece has no "front" or "back" as it can be worn either way...looking good and differently from every angle.
It's worn on a black millinery elastic.
