Day 411 / Hat 411: Multicolor striped sun hat with deconstructed raffia edge and floral print sweatband lining. Interior tag reads "Grevi, made in Italy," and fabrication tag reads: "40% acrylic, 40% nylon, 20% raffia."
A last minute dash-and-grab from the Bride's closet room. "I got that at Anthropologie," she says of its provenance. I, in turn, schnibbed it from the hat rack front and center inside the room. How it lasted this long without making the Project I do not know.
It's been a bear of a Friday, time to go hibernate ...
