Flip the hat! New handmade reversible sunhats.

I've been very productive this week. Besides making new sunhats I've also been shopping for new fabrics.  Custom listing for the sunhat you always have dreamed of!
Not only do I just love hats. I also can never understand how on midday in midsummer people can walk outdoors without the comfortable shade of a sunhat.
Reversible sun hats for sale now:
Dutch Orange/Delft Blue:

Red Roses / Polka Dots:

More new handmade hats will be added to the shop today.
And here's just showing of the fabrics I got:

My day at the SUNDAY MARKET in Amsterdam

Not scared off by all doom and gloom weather reports, a lot of people visited the Sunday Market in Amsterdam today. I was one of them. One of the reasons was: it being an opportunity of saying hello to all the Etsy sellers who had a booth. 

The other reason was that in autumn I would like to take my knitwear to a crafty / handmade market, so I am doing some field research.
The atmosphere on the Sunday market is relaxed and friendly. I liked the variation of crafts represented. There is something for everyone and on top of that delicious food available.
You can find a pic of some of my purchases here.
*The earrings are from Fleurfatale.-- [similar earrings from her shop]
*On my way to the market it was my first time to travel with the OV Chip card (a public transport card) and I realised it was not convenient to put it in my wallet in my bag everytime I boarded or left a bus/train.
Luckily I found my solution in the metro card holder at the booth of Spectacle a la Maison.
