They are pretty cute but what do you do with them besides just look and admire. Are the sellable? If so, then I can keep making them. LOL Otherwise I'll just end up with a ton of these little hats. The crushed velvet is my favorite and obviously it's going to be my most recent one with the burgundy and gold sari silk and hand made crystal hat pin. I just don't know what to do with them at this point. They might be pretty cool for a Bridal shower as table decor, maybe a Steampunk themed party or Halloween.
So, if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.
Just a little tidbit about how the "Mad Hatter" name came about. It really is inspired by the phrase "mad as a hatter". Mercury used to be used in curing the felt for hats, making it impossible for hatters to avoid inhaling the Mercury fumes. Mercury poisoning causes neurological damage as well as confused speech and distorted vision.
Explains a lot about how I'm feeling...oh wait, I didn't use any felt. I guess I don't have an excuse.
