Circus Hat

Illustrated Design by TopsyTurvyDesign
Ring Leader Top Hat by TopsyTurvyDesign

I am in love with her hats! I used to collect hats and at one time applied for a job at a Millinery in Sebastopol, CA. but they wanted someone with experience~ I only had some sewing skills which wasn't enough for them, but it has always been a fascination of mine. I never gave up on my love of hats. The history, styling, fabrics, netting, buttons and laces. When I had to start moving around I gave up my hat collection as much as I loved it. I only kept one of my grandma's hats and a hat my mom made for my older girls. When I saw this video and that she made circus hats I had to share~ A girl after my own heart. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
Have you ever had a fascination with something, or started a collection? What led you to where you are creatively?

  1. Love Topsy Turvy! She's in my hood, too, Oakland CA.
    Even though I make hats, I've never gone to millinery school, and I'm not giving up hope yet!
