DIY oak

I totally forgot to blog yesterday because i was too busy making hats.
A pretty good excuse if you ask me.
I also cleaned the apartment and watched Star Trek, but those somehow seem like less valid excuses.
Anyway, as i may have told you before, i'm working on a collection of 6 or 7 hats with the same theme.
It's something i have never tried before, but i think it's going pretty well.
I finished all the bases last week and now comes the fun/difficult part of actually designing the hats.
Last night i finished one, all it needs is some super glue, and started another.
My fingers and nails are completely ruined today from all the hand sewing, metal twisting and gluing of stuff, but in a good way.

Sometimes you have to make your own oak leaves
Before it was done, i don't wanna reveal the finished result until i've made a few more

Allan just went to the new shop to clean and paint and i'll be joining him shortly.
I'm already wearing my camouflage overalls and that can only mean that it's time to get dirty.

    Hope you have fun at the shop, workn :)
