I really like this one.... I like how it is a cloche, or an Attitude Hat. It can be a tam or it can just be a cap. So versatile.

She had arrived. Standing in the doorway, elegant as usual, she greeted me with the side of her cheek.
She talked of her train ride last evening and how patiently she had waited at the station. All I could think of was how the moonlight must have looked on her, glorifying this beautiful creature. I asked if she ever worried about traveling alone and she told me, "No". And in that one word I saw the appreciative glances she had gotten from every man and woman on that train.

But I knew, Simone being Simone, that she had ignored them, and stayed intent on watching her own reflection in the dark glass as she sped to see me.

</div><span style="font-family: arial;">I love this color... it is one of my favorites.  In fact, I have a whole stash of fabrics, pieces of clothing from thrift stores, etc, stored under my bed.  They have been there for years.... Someday they will become something else.  I always remember them whenever I am working on something else in the color Copper.</span>

<span style="font-family: arial;">This is "Cuprum", (which is Latin for copper).   These cloche style hats arecharming, don't make me sweat in this hot weather and are just plan fun to play with.</span>

Yes... not only am I enjoying how these are coming out... I am thoroughly enjoying making them. I love embellishing and the side embellishment on this piece as well as the last one ("Mandy Cloche")were so much fun putting together...

Here is "Loretta" from the Cloche Series:
I love that she can be worn in a variety of ways (tassel in back, pulled low over the eyes, high on the head).

I feel like its been awhile since I made a hat. Whether that is true or not doesn't really matter. It is that I feel like that, that is important. So.... i've been playing.

On one of my other blogs, Just Hats, I recently did a piece entitled "The Cloche and its Charm". I truly am enamored of the Cloche. Any woman can wear one and the styles are innumerable.

Here is a new one: I had a lot of fun making it and even more fun embellishing it. There are a lot more pics here.

The hat is currently for sale in my shop at 1000 Markets - http://DreamWoven.1000Markets.com

Haven't done a custom order of this type in awhile. Meet Art For Your Head "April". The requested colour scheme was cream, black, white and gray. And I am reminded again, how awful it is to photograph things that are primarily the same tone, except for one of the colours. Alas......

Inca Stories "Woods Basket Weave" Deep in the woods colour. Ridges and lacework run around the back perimeter and it is embellished with three tassels. The two side tassels are topped with a vintage button from my personal collection and a silver metal hand cut tube bead.
This is a beautiful combination of hand dyed wool, wool/hemp and a touch of cotton. This combination creates a lightweight yet warm hat. It is one of the few hats that I make that is totally crochet. She can be found at my 1000Markets shop. Http://DreamWoven.1000Markets.com
