This is a project that has been on the back burner for several months now and I really want to give it some attention again this winter. My hope is to prefect this Steampunk Top Hat design and offer it online by next Halloween. However, there are some hurdles I need to overcome first before I can realistically produce this hat for any number of customers. Primarily I need to figure out a way to make a hat block that will work for this shape, which is more difficult than one might think. I am hoping to have the parts made for me from a 3D printer. Once I do though I can picture many different color combinations of wool hats and leather laces. The hat in the photos is one that I made for myself, and as a demo it is not for sale, but the final product should look almost exactly like it.
