Hat Making Classes!
by Bonnie B. Lewis and Mary Ann Kaahanui

  What can a hat say about a doll? More than any other clothing item, a hat expresses style, attitude, status and a wide range of moods. It can suggest financial means, convey marital status and indicate religion. A hat can create the costume or complete the outfit. It reveals the inner nature of the wearer and thus, a hat makes a defining statement about the doll.
