I create each of my hats with tender loving care. Each hat is carefully covered with material piece by piece then lovingly embellished with various items as if a picture is being painted or a story being told. When each hat is completed, it is numbered then signed with my artist alias "Babs LaRue" making each hat a unique collectors item as well as a piece of wearable art. I also take custom orders.
Whether you want to wear your hat to a reenactment event, costume ball, the Kentucky Derby or use it as house decor, I am sure you will enjoy it for years to come!
"Autumn Evening" is a personal favorite. The form was covered with two different colors of fabric, a rich chocolate brown satin on the top outer brim and the crown, inside and underside of the brim is covered in black satin. I used a multi earth-toned material with a nice eye catching sheen for the band. I beaded the edge with amber colored glass seed beads. This wonderfully fun hat is embellished with feathers and ribbon and is topped off with pieces from antique jewelry and
appliques with a piece of an old gold watch chain for an added bit of personality. This hat will definitely turn heads no matter where you choose to wear it.
