Derby Hat

Oh man, I knew this month was going to be busy but I didn't know how busy. My poor little mind is doing back-flips and because of this it just hasn't been up to full creative power.

I did manage to find time to finish my hat for a Kentucky Derby party.

I got the hat in Colonial Williamsburg when I was a teenager. It had pink ribbon roses but I cut those off to make my derby hat. 

The red flowers are Crochet Geek's Slinky Crochet Flowers
The white flowers are Crochet Geek's Small Crochet Flowers
and the leaves are from my own Sakuramochi
The flowers were worked with size 3 crochet thread and a C hook. The leaves were worked with cheap embroidery floss and a size 0 steel hook.
