    Thanks very much. Actually I did think you were kidding. Ha! Here is another picture. This was supposed to be a satin finish, but ended up very shiny. It doesn't look nearly as rough and worn as I wanted it to. I might have to rub some dirt on it.
  9. Very nice work. Well done.

    Thanks. Thank you. Thanks. I didn't think ahead enough to stamp the logo into the leather. I was too focused on whether the pieces were going to work and how to stitch it and dyed all parts before starting to put it together. So yes, I drew many logos until I had one I liked and then painted it on with a brush freehand. As to the sizing, her head is almost as big as mine, but she has a lot more hair so it should fit. Here is a close up of the logo. Thanks. I looked all over the net at different styles of aviator hats and went with this one just for the shape of it. Seven panels wasn't too bad, and I drew the shapes on thick brown paper and taped them together. It took me three attempts to get one that fit me, then I transferred it to leather. I'm hopeful that it will fit, but won't know for sure until I mail it to her. Ha! I took a chance and hope it worked.

    I've just finished making this for my sister for this coming Christmas. She has enough handbags and belts already, so I made her a hat. It's been tricky and I've done a few things I haven't done before. It's the first time I've tried making anything with a lining, or piping, and I wanted to make it look old and used too, so it's pretty rough. Why an aviator hat? She is a big fan of Atomic-Robo, and Girl genius, (web-comics) so I think it works even if she rarely wears it. I had lots of fun and frustration making it.

    Wow! Well done, good sir. Everything from the design to the dye looks great. Thanks for the follow up post.
