I was wandering around the inter-web (yes I was trying to be funny) when I stumbled upon a stubborn woman's blog.
Being the nosy woman I am I went and checked out her Etsy page.
Lo and behold she has some really great hat patterns on there! If hat making appeals to you but you don't know where to start her shop seems to be a good place to head (no pun intended lol)
"It seems most people think of hats as something you wear on a bad hair day or outside when it is cold. Hats are much more than this. Hats protect your hair, scalp and face from the sun. They are also important as the finishing touch to your outfit, whether dressy or casual. I design and make Crocheted Hats and Leather Accessories for women of style with a bit of edge. My hats flatter you and my leather pieces set you apart."
Finding her site has helped me to ground myself a bit. I always thought I made good hats but I am blown away by the great colors, the clean lines, and the attention to detail. The little details she adds, ribbon here, flowers there, really makes the hats sing (metaphorically of course)
I aspire to have hats as amazing as hers!
She has some other nice and unique creations but you need to go soon as she has been ordered by her doctor to quit with the crochet. Once her store sells out she plans to close it.
Go visit her blog and her store and let her know how awesome her crochet is! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us Betty Atkins!
