A Morning’s Whimsy Witch Hat Work

I will be putting the Whimsy Whitch Hats on this blog.

I made two littles and two bigs this morning. I cut them on two occasions earlier this week but didn’t have the after school energy to sew them.

It occured to me I had some pieces of Family Heirloom Weavers fabric that might make nice hats. Well…… I Love how this hat came out. Their fabric makes a great brim with nice body. If you love this as much as I do, let me know. I have one more piece pulled out to make up. I do need to wait for brown thread though.
I completely forgot I had this vintage wool in my wool craft stash. It makes up a celestial hat with its splatters of blue and golden threads.
The Mini Whimsy Witch Hats include the plaid people on FB say makes the think of Professor M and a mini version of the FHW hat. Sooooooo cute!

Special Announcement: Whimsy Witch Hats are Now Available!!!!

I am very excited to announce my Whimsy Witch Hats, the first of my modern Whimsy Millinery line.

Don’t worry, I am not abandoning my focus on reproduction straw and winter millinery, just expanding and adding this fun, whimsical line. Each of my Whimsy Witch hats are handmade by me. The vast majority of my Whimsy Witch Hats are wool or wool blends, including upcycled wool, and lined with silk or cotton sateen. Some hats will be left plain, allowing the wool to take center stage, while others will be trimmed or embellished. I’ve been playing with embroidery, patchwork, applique, and even needle felting. For the construction, I am using a combination of hand and machine sewing for these pieces.

Announcing 2 New Publications

This week’s video announces not one, but two publications!


The Whimsy Witch Hat Pattern is my first “modern” pattern. It was requested after I started making a series of witch hats to wear last year. My goal is to offer a pattern that is easy to follow and fun to make. If this is received well, I will add future project patterns.

I mentioned the spoon project in the video. This is the Spoon Memorial by Made on the Moors, a collaborative art project honoring the women persecuted as witches during the witch hunt in England. Find more information here: https://www.madeonthemoors.co.uk/medicine-spoon-memorial-1
