Slouch hat michelesartandapparel.com/gorgeousslouchyhats

The completed Slouchy Hats are on the top of the page.  I've always intended to create these adorable hats to be adorned properly.  Fully customizable from start to finish as with Anything I would create for you.

The first of many. Mind you, this hat took months to create.  I do not follow someone's patterns to ANY degree. More details, obviously, on the new page.

While "building" the Rasta Hat
(only using my own planning &
patterns), the thought naturally occurred that I should bring you into how & WHY I choose every bit of the creation.  This is Super-Great advice that I wish I'd had decades ago.  Please be patient with the progress of this page.  Please offer your own advice and comments!!!  Everyone's thoughts added are only a PLUS and appreciated.

Consignment Shop.  Eventually these items will be in their own
location. 

This is Edith.  She is

I'm featuring
my beautiful 
daughter's 
creations - on her
very own page.
She's quite talented.
Check out her work. 
She, like myself, is easy to work
with and open to making
custom designs.

Usually, she's very well-behaved but she has her moments...here she's photo-bombing the picture of my honeysuckle.
She's felted and I'm very attached
to her.  She's my first attempt at felting.  I have more very cute 
felted creations as well.  She is ~3" tall.

Under Construction/No Online Orders...because

While the site is under constant construction and I am the ONLY person conducting every aspect of this business, there are Constantly bits and pieces here and there that are not perfect.  My focus is really on the creation of each piece and when I can get the chance to, I post the items on the site.  Google is after me constantly to add or subtract coding to my site and there just isn't enough time in the day to do all of that.  As a creative person, my focus is in CREATING.  Or marketing--on foot.  

I don't want to sell online....because what I really want you to ask me to make you something YOU want.  I'll make it and send it.  I have tons of merchandise in stock, yes, you can buy pretty buy much anything you see on the site.  I'll gladly take payment and mail it out to you. Truthfully, that rarely happens.  Mostly, and successfully so for all involved, I make custom orders and that's what is sold.  Have a question? ask me.  Does the site have lots of "missing pieces?" yes.  Does that frustrate me? yes.  Everything about presentation matters.  Mine.  Yours.  Cinderella didn't have time to gussy up but she sure made sure everybody else had what They needed.  In the end, whatever, however that worked for her, but, as a one-woman show I'm pretty proud of this site for what it is because I, at least, can make what I can make, and I'm forever learning and getting better and I make people happy when they ask for something.  They get what they asked for because it's what they wanted and needed and I was the one to make it or fix it or just listen to that request and make it happen.  But, I do hate that any bits and pieces missing on the site are there and if you find it inconvenient to not be able to shop directly from the site, for that I apologize.  I'm easy to work with and I've already gone on long enough but I'm down here saying, "I get it and bear with me."  And, "please understand, I have a LOT to do in all of this endeavor."
