As well as the fun shibori workshop I've also been doing little bits of art/sewing at home. I bought a cheap hat in the sales but it just looked too folorn as it was - plain black paper straw with a plain black band and bow.

It's rather 'naive' but it's cute and it was really therapeutic so it makes me happy :)
