My hat has had a bit of work done on it. When I first found it while thrifting a couple of years ago, it was tan with embroidered, pastel flowers on it. It looked like something I would've worn for Easter when I was 8-years-old. I fixed it up by seam-ripping the embroidery stitches out and then dyeing it with watered down, acrylic paint (because it's cheaper than dye). After that I added feathers and some of my own bead work and now it's completely new hat.
