Titanic Derby Hat

Last Friday marked the 100th anniversary of the Titanic.  It was also the day of a work fundraiser where I volunteered.  It's usually a big to-do where there's a fake horse race, similar to the Kentucky Derby.  Therefore, there were derby hats!! This was a very last minute creation.  I worked on it the night before with some old manila folders, foam sheets, and lots of hot glue.  It's not permanently attached on the wool hat, but there's a hole on the bottom of the boat where it fits snugly on top.  This opening is also where the lights inside the boat can be turned on and off.  Yes folks, working lights!! Ta da!  Needless to say this hat won best in show!
