This is a Vintage Hat, Hand Made by......ME!! :)
A loooooong time ago in a Business far, far away called "Hat Matters" I was a Milliner by trade! I lived in Montana then and spent my time rescuing fabrics by day and resewing them into Wondrously Unique Hats by night. This was 1990-1992 before "Upcycling" was a common word and it gave me great pleasure to lay out my latest Fabric finds and figure out what kind of Millinery masterpiece I wanted to try and create with it. I closed my business but kept all the hats I hadn't sold and they have been waiting in a trunk for 20 years now to go play and be a part of someone's life, please see the Millinery Information below for more information on this particular Hat!

♥*~ To see other Hat's I have created, please go to this section of my Shoppe:
♥ PLEASE NOTE ♥: This Gorgeous Hat is NOS, meaning: New Old Stock, it is UNworn and in Perfect Condition...YAY!!

Thank You for stopping into Grey Mare Mercantile and have a Beautiful Day!
Peace and smiles....

** This Gorgeous Hat is 23 1/2" on the inside Circumference. The Height of the Hat is about 3 1/2" and the Brim is about 2 1/2". My "noggin" is 22" around and this Hat fits loose on me.
"Yul Gandhi's" Head (that's the Clay Bust model's Name, made by me too!) is almost 23 1/2" and it's a Perfect fit for Him....just sayin'!

** I do not know the "origin" of this Fabric as it was acquired during Thrift Shop hunts. What this means is I would find a piece of Fabric that was something else, or piles of "Fat Quarters", etc in Thrift Shops, buy them and "Upcycle" them. I do know that this particular fabric is a Wondrous, Soft and Luxurious Black Velvet that looks Brand NEW with NO glitches....YAY! The Silk SunFlowers I purchased New and there are 7 Glorious SunShiney Flowers going around the Hat as well as some Silk Leaves.
*♥.• NOTE: Due to the nature of this Velvet, {it being SO Black!} the fabric really does look different depending on which angle you are looking at it and what type of light is happening around it, so ALL the photos are accurate depictions of the colors in this piece. Any questions....? Please do not hesitate to contact me:

** It was Hand Sewn on my Mom's old Singer by Yours Truly. I attached the Silk Sunflowers with a combination of Fabric "Glue" and Sewing, so they are going NoWhere! I then Hand Sewed a Black Cotton Lining into it with my Hallmark Label sewn on the back inside of the hat which reads:
An Original By
Hat Matters
Kristin Love Evans
{that was my married name at the time....ahem.....}

** It is in Excellent Vintage Condition....NEVER WORN!!!!!

*♥.• PLEASE NOTE: This is a One of a Kind Vintage piece, handmade from Vintage fabric and SunFlowers. There will be irregularities in the sewing due to human error, {that would be ME}, this was not made in a factory on a machine.

´♥.• I have 2 other Shops here in Etsyland where I sell my Handmade Pottery and my Paintings and Photography!! Please click here to go visit them:
