Well to say that I was sorry to have missed the day trip to Chapeau Willy's is to say the least an understatement. I did however attend the textile course held in the beautiful Chateau Dumas, but I had to leave on the Wed and the trip was on the Friday, still I will do it another time, definitely on my wish list. So come and have a virtual browse around with me.
Fortunately Carolyn, a lady I met on the course did go to the hat factory, and she very kindly sent me some of her pictures so I could drool over at my leisure.
And here is the lovely Carolyn herself modelling a Chapeau Willy hat and looking very pleased with herself!
Carolyn I might add made some wonderful things on the textile day at a speed that would leave you dizzy, from bags,skirts, lavender sachets and to many more for me to list.
I also discovered that Carolyn makes little dolls which she calls Fashionista Sisters and they are really adorable, with such attention to detail and I love the outfits . Here are a few of her lovelies and if you want to see more or even purchase go have a look at her website http://www.carrad.vpweb.co.uk/
