So I made a 1950's tilt hat today using an old vinyl record. I used boiling water to heat and shape the hat.
But before I share the hat I want to exclaim over some great patterns and vintage notions that I got for really cheap at an estate sale. I was got several boxes of patterns and a box of belt buckles and a bunch of hat buckram.
So many patterns!
There were so many patterns from the 80's and 90's that I am not sure what I will do with, but there was a number of patterns from the 50's and 60's that I really love.
It shall take me quite a while to sort through and organize these patterns.
There were massive belts buckles and small belt buckles.
I am looking forwards to using these and making belts. Belts and hats are two of my favorite accessories.
So, on to the hat. I made it with from a vinyl record as the base.
I boiled hot water and dumped that over it to soften it up. I then shaped the hat with my fingers. I covered the record title with a giant flower and gave it a finishing touch with some greenery and netting.
Overall I like the effect and want to wear this with a little 1950's looking black dress. I shall try to take pictures when I get the outfit around.
That's all for now.
