A Little Steampunk

Ok, I was going to save this for tomorrow, but I just can't wait. Another recently completed hat- this one is made using my mini Regency Top Hat block, in sage green felt with light and dark sage ribbonwork, natural-colored emu feathers, and clock parts and a metal button to finish the cockade.

I discovered emu feathers a few weeks ago, they're amazing! I'm a sucker for feathers that move around, and these nod all over the place, a real attention-getter. I'm having fun playing with these steampunk styles, it's really opening up my color palette.

This style for sale now on Etsy, and this exact hat will for sale be at Dark Garden Corsetry soon.
