Try them on!

Yesterday, I brought in my new products to Circa Arts Gallery in downtown. I made some hats and jewelry. This is how my table looks like in the gallery now.

The hats are reversible. One side it is wool and has beautiful Fall themed appliques. And the other side is quality linen/cotton fabric which I brought back from Japan. And jewelry, I crocheted some necklaces and bracelets with interesting elements.

 I designed Autumn berries and flowers with several Autumn colored wool felts.

This is the reverse side of the hat above. It is surprisingly different from the other side and I think that is really fun (to make and to wear).

It can be worn like this. A little peek of a chic polka dot lining.

This one below has appliqued flowers both on the crown and the brim. The flowers are imaginary but I thought of chrysanthemums because it is one of my favorite Autumn flowers.

And the other side has this colorful linen/cotton fabric. What a fun project! I wanna make more reversible hats in various fabric combinations.

These are all hand crocheted jewelry. I crochet sequins in balls and made necklaces and bracelets with them.

There are matching bracelets.

In many colors!

I want them to be worn casually with T shirts, sweaters, and either dresses.
I am going to list similar items in my Etsy shop soon. My goal is re-opening the shop within September. It seems I have to work harder to make it. But I will try!

And if you live in Michiana area, please come to Circa Arts Gallery and try them on! I think you will like it! ;-)

Stay warm (it is cold in SB today!) and you all have a good weekend!
