Upcycled Late 1970’s Straw Hat- Am I from Mexico?

This flat natural straw hat appears to be a character hat from the late 1970’s. This hat was a demonstration piece for my 4-5th Grade ‘Sewing Girls’, at Marcy Open School, after school classes…THEY LOVED MAKING FACINATORS AND HATS. They then would ‘borrow ‘ my phone taking pictures of themselves, playing with all the IPhone photo settings..THEN we would play fashion show, to the other after school classes. They would figure out routines for each person’s headpiece. This last time , a fellow student /friend in a media class, made a movie on her phone…Fun was had by all !!!!!! We all were very proud of our girls ingenuity!!!


Most of the fabrics, flowers and feathers are recycled. This hat has ties to keep on head. Because of its vintage, I will send some fabric and flowers for just in case repairs.
