I’m thrilled to be a contributor to Carla Hegeman Crim‘s new book, Sewn Hats, published by Wiley. Her blog tour for the book started last month, so you may have seen chances to win this book around the blogosphere. If you haven’t won yet, you get another chance here!
I wanted my contribution to the book to be a fun hat for boys. Thinking back a few years, my boys always enjoyed a good bit of playing make-believe with costumes, especially hats. My husband still has his “Davey Crockett” faux coonskin cap from his childhood stashed in a box of memorabilia. We also have a framed print of Andrew Wyeth’s Faraway painting featuring a boy in a field wearing such a hat. The whole frontiersman theme makes me feel nostalgic on several levels! So designing the Coonskin Cap seemed like the perfect project. My design is made with 2 colors of faux fur and is lined with a plaid flannel. I especially love the way this shot is styled! The model has a look like Ralphy with his Red Rider BB gun in A Christmas Story ! :) See? I told you I was feeling nostalgic.
Ready to win a copy of this book? Leave a comment here telling me what kind of hats are your favorites. I will randomly choose a winner by Sunday October 7th at 10 pm EST. Open to US residents, only! Also, please make sure I can contact you if you win!
