Grandma's Fabric

I inherited some vintage fabric from my grandmother and I never knew quite what to do with it. I wanted to save it for something special, but I wanted to use it so that it wouldn't just get stuck in a box and forgotten. One day in this wonderful eclectic store I happened upon a hat that I didn't think I could live with out, but it was way out of my price range. ( You know, that "practical price range for a hat" that every lady has to set for herself.) It had this wonderful 1920's look/ feel to it, and would be perfect made out of my grandma's fabric. I decided that I would attempt to make it, and this is what I came up with. It is very similar to the original, and it makes me love the fabric even more.

I sort of made it up as I went along and now I wish that I had tried to formulate some sort of pattern. Lesson learned, eh?!

My new 'happy hat'!!

Seriously?!? Is there nothing you can't do? Simply beautiful. (And the girl in the hat is kind of cute too.) It begs the question, why didn't I inherit some wonderful fabric like that? (just giving you grief because it seems like the big sis thing to do.) Seriously. love. the. hat!
