I made this hat in a couple of nights, watching my secret crush Robert Osborne on TV. (I love him so much I will only marry men who can do good Robert Osborne impressions. Serious.)
The Bat Hat is made from an old cashmere sweater I bought in a Vancouver thriftshop, washed in hot water to get it all nice and thick, and then cut out around a stepkid's toque I found stuffed in a closet. The bottom part that rolls up is the bottom of the sweater, so it's a little elasticized, for that kinda lumpy 1930's look. The bat skull I embroidered, thinking of New England gravestones and Edward Gorey.
Plug alert: I'm reading an article in Absolute Underground about my pal Tomb.
