May I say that not only the stuff you make is lovely and with tremendous details but also that you're a true and kind profesional who isn't afraid of showing how she works?. I had looked (and faved) severals of your hats and works and you always answer the question about the materials and techniques that you use to make them, with patience, details and kind words. Other people aren't open to the idea of sharing his "secrets" (so-to-speak) and altough I understand it must be horrible finding out that someone copy your work It's because of that that I find charming your attitude . Besides, the hats and accesories that you do are the most beautiful, delicate and very original I've ever seen and I'm sure nobody could replicate that effect Too bad that I live so far. Between the type of change and the shipping It's imposible for me to buy one, but If I ever get rich I know what I want Sorry for the english, still learning... Bye!!
It's a cardboard base :3 for the amount of stuff I put on the hat, the cardboard is light and actually quit sturdy. I still have hats from a few years ago, and even made a few for my daughter to play with, which are still in tact. The key is to cover it in felt :3
