I'm sure that if we had a cat (which we don't) he would be a "cat in a hat" The way cats have of getting into whatever you are doing. And my desk is stacked high with hats right now. Great place for a cat to get, right in the middle of the hats.
When we decided to go to the Trades Days in Kountze, I drug out my "old sun hats" and revived the idea. I gathered up remnants and bought a few new pieces of fabric and started making hats to take to the Trades Days to sell. Several suggested that I put them for sale on line also. Well this past week, I did just that.
One morning I took all the remaining hats over to Mimi's and took pictures under her car port while she got to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and watch the birds a while before the day got too hot.
At the suggestion of Gale aka Bargain Express, I looked up Art Fire and set up a Studio there to sell my hats.
I am very happy so far with listing on Art Fire.
Here's my own Art Fire Studio.
These are really neat hats for keeping the sun off. They have a wire in the brim to keep them spread like an umbrella. But the wire is light enough to bend it to shape as you want;
|The Texas hats are probably the most popular. |
My former classmate from San Antonio and now facebook friend
was one of the first to buy one on line and this was her choice.
Also sold a couple like this at the Trades Days.
For Sale Here!
|The little girl hats don't have wire in the brim.|

|This is the inside of the hat above. Or is it the outside?|
Depends how you choose to wear it!
My sister-in-law's sister (there should be a name for in-laws or relatives of in-laws, don't you think?) right off thought of using one of these for a fishing hat.
|She chose this "froggy" print for her fishing hat. We lined it with solid red. Cute!|
|This little girl hat is a special one with the flower on top. It is lined with 2 shades of green. |

|Here's Gale and I at the Trades Days in Kountze with our Hats.|

I'm excited about listing the sun hats on line. I hope you will take a look at them. I am also anxious to make more hats. I have a good stash of fabric and some neat ideas for other hats.
