Fabric flower hat

I promised to show you the flower on the hat, and here it is. This is one of the hats I’m bringing to Madrid for the Hat week. I’m very honored to be able to show three of my hats there, among those of people who have been in the business very long and are very experienced and well known. 

This pattern is a variation on the one I made from a play-doh model. This version is not only meant to be worn tilted to the right, but also has a shorter crown. I hope you like it!


  1. Fabulous!!

  10. Awesome hat! I really like that even though you used so many feathers, they are highlighting the hat instead of becoming the highlight themselves

  12. Very nice! I have a question. Is it possible to by the tools ? And if yes could you tell me please where? I use to make flowers when I was a child and I used to have those tools and when I moved to USA I did not take them with me and I find it hard to find.Thank you!

  13. Hi Elina, I suggest you check with USA supplier because they have a flower iron set (electrical not like mine). And if you want the old fashion irons I know of only three places where you can buy them, two in Europe and the other one in Australia:
    Good luck!
