If you’re just joining Lars now, welcome! Sit back or pull up a chair and make some things with me. Last year I entered a Kentucky Derby hat contest at the Today Show (see the clip here). They flew me out to NYC for a live show and I won! I won a 3′ trophy. I thought I’d show you how to make it yourself. This one is almost twice as large as the one I made for the show (see the one from the show here), but it shows you can make it in a variety of sizes.
This time I used a Laura Ashley scarf to tie around my neck to hold it in place and I provided the tutorial on Laura Ashley’s blog in addition to below.
