When my dad asked for a hat band for Christmas I had no idea that it would take on a life of it’s own. The hat he wanted it for was a cheap hat he picked up somewhere. After creating this piece, I had no choice but to get him a new hat to go with the band.
I did a peyote stitch around the stones and the band itself is an flat odd count peyote stitch. I came up with the design myself. It took me about three solid days of stitching to get the band complete. The stones took no time at all to make.
He cried when he opened it.
