All Tied Up: Grey fur felt Forties style

I've also started a British racing green felt hat on my favourite big bubble block and dipped brim. I've been inspired by a deep East to West brim straw hat from my mood boards, so I'm trying a similar style in luxorious felt. The brim block hasn't been used for a while and the results were fairly predictable...! Still, it'll all be worth it in the end - updates to follow next week!
As always, it's also been a fortnight of multitasking, and I finished off the white beaded sinamay button from the last post. I've so pleased with how it turned out - a shell edged lining takes a little longer, but I think it's always worth it, and the stitch is my favourite in my millinery arsenal :)
