Inspiration for millinery ideas can come from anywhere, even the trash!
My latest Tartan Take Out Pillbox Hat is one such lightbulb moment. 
Ever the environmentalist, I never throw anything away without first asking myself, "what new purpose can this serve?" So, a take out Chinese food container, fully opened out flat, (washed of course!!) became the pattern for this adorable, very chic little pillbox hat. Pleated and constructed in exactly the same way. You'll love wearing this unique piece of wearable art, and feel great knowing that the 100% mohair is from a recycled vintage skirt, over a stiff buckram interlining. The same tartan mohair fabric is used in a thick corded piping, as the finishing edge. A removable vintage Spencerian script brooch, a pouf of Russian veiling, a cockade of dyed rooster and hackle feather make this not only a great attention getter and conversation piece, but an environmental statement. Wear it with a fabulous tailored jacket and boots, with jeans and a cozy sweater, or dress it up to the nines!! Fits heads to measure 22-23". It is meant to sit above the ears, with a bit of air space above the head. Chain stitch loops allow you to add bobby pins or clips to help hold it in place on a windy day! 
Fully lined in 100% breathable rayon jacquard.
