Fun Hat Collages

For amusement, I started making digital collages featuring my felted headwear. Then, during the Coronavirus, collaging became a therapeutic necessity. Many of the collages from this period were inspired by online friend Josephine Dervish's delightful Joyous Dressing challenge. 

Some of the hat collages reveal millinery inspiration. While others are merely surrealistic 'what ifs.'

Here they are, in order of creation. The first one is quite old, but the rest were made in the last year or so. Most of them can be seen over on my Instagram account.  

Oh! If you click on a collage, it should take you to the associated Shop page. 

Pardon that there is a very, very long scroll. I've not managed to figure out how to make an attractive table on Shopify. And the html skills that I learned a long tiime ago in Library School have atrophied. :)
