Asymetrical Half Hat









This is a sweet little block. I bought it from eBay a few weeks ago. I wasn't going to buy anymore blocks, you know where I'm going with this. But, I just couldn't stop myself from buying it.
The Pheasant Tail Feathers I cut and shaped then wrapped with a thin strip of the felt. I wasn't sure if I liked the way it looked on the hat, so I tried a small curled Ostrich Feather in light gray. If I come up with another feather from the box that was just delivered from eBay I'll post it later. BTW eBay is a really good source for vintage feathers..

It's a sweet little block! Shipping to Europe makes it too expensive for me to buy blocks in the US, so I buy my vintage blocks on eBay Germany...

It looks great with the long feathers, and I must do as you say and look for vintage feathers on Ebay!

I'm always eying Blocks from Germany and England but like you the shipping is prohibitive for me. Mixed up world!.
