Here we see an actual picture of me WEARING hats I've made!
I think the squeaky new faux blackwork coif (faux as in modern machine embroidered - not printed) works pretty darn well, and is actually a linen blend! I have another one cut out but not made yet, and I have lots of that fabric. (figured I'd make a shirt out of it if the coif thing didn't pan out.
I was kindof surprised at how much happier I was wearing a very plain black hat when it had the embroidered coif under it.
(thanks again to Denise for the picture!!)
