Pretty Purple Hat

This pretty hat is made with a dyed wheat straw that highlights different tones depending on the light. It has hints of rose, lavender, champagne, and blush all in one. Because it it natural straw, the color does vary through the hat.

In this hat, I decided to play off the lavender purple tones, adding a purple silk ribbon bound in loops of straw and pretty pink and purple velvet vintage flowers.

This crown is 20.5″ around inside with the ribbon lining, suited for an average head. It has a pair of cotton satteen ties to help hold it on your head.
