About this Product

Unique denim sun hat with a floppy brim. Colorful and fully lined, it is made from repurposed materials, including the batting under the patchwork. XL adult size hat, this hat features quilted patchwork on the hat top and brim. Unique hand embroidery around the hatband, beautiful random flowers reminiscent of a wildflower meadow..

Definitely a one of a kind accessory!

This hat wants to go to that festival, flea market, or barbecue and make people smile. Certain to be the only hat like it wherever you go!

The patching is from a large amount of fabric squares that I acquired at an auction. I am always rescuing fabric, and sometimes it is in need of a tremendous amount of work to become something that is useful and lovable again. This particular project is pretty spot on in both those areas.

The patching is complimented by the soft blue of the denim. The the brim have zig zag top-stitching. The sweet granny look of the patches needed a contemporary edginess, I thought. The hat band is graced with an assortment of embroidered flowers that I added freehand. Wildflower season is just beginning for us here in south western Virginia. I wanted to add some of that random beauty to this hat.

The lining is a combination of a teal and blue plaid, an orange gingham and a monochromatic blue daisy print. There's a lot of color getting along together here.

Who said you can't follow the latest trends and make eco-friendly choices?? ALL fabrics are repurposed!

Fully lined, this hat is not recommended as a reversible.

Hat band is 23". This is a extra large adult size hat.

The hat brim is 3". Hat brim is 3.5".

This hat is great for big heads, big hair, and big ideas!

Henry, VA
Welcome! The important thing to know is that I use up cycled fabric exclusively. Denim remakes, fabrics repurposed, I am always giving textiles another life.

Meet the Maker

What I do:

Textiles. Creating. Repurposing. The things that I am passionate about are here.  As a sewer, maker, and creator....I offer one of a kind creations using up-cycled textiles, imagination, and respect for materials. 

Fabrics come from thrift shops, auctions, donations, etc. It is time intensive to find, 'harvest' and prepare fabrics for reuse.  Being aware of the textile waste in our world has prompted me to reuse all that I can (and soap box about fast fashion at every opportunity).  Google 'Fast Fashion'...you'll understand my passion.  

No new fabrics are harmed in the making of any items in this shop!

Ridiculously fun to make, LOVEpiecefully Bucket Hats are a walking billboard for reducing textile waste while you look great!

The start:

I started sewing as a child. Creating something useful out of fabric and thread was just amazing to me! Colors and textures? Thrilling! That's not to say I was successful from the beginning. Hardly so, but it was a fun ride to make and learn and remake and learn some more!

By High School, I was making my own clothes.

Later:

Through out my adult momhood, I sewed. Not as much as I would have liked, but, life, you know. I did make costumes at Halloween for my kids from their (sometimes outlandish) ideas. I created costumes for many school plays because it takes a village.

I was not making my own wardrobe due to time restraints, but I often bought from second hand shops for myself and my kids. I am an eco aware person in many small ways--no plastic wrap, paper napkins, paper towels in my house. It only makes sense that some of those sensibilities would find their way into my clothes closet.

Now:

Rewind to the beginning of the pandemic. I thought I could help in some small way, so I dug out my sewing machine and started sewing. Soon, my husband and I were making and donating masks....lots and lots of masks. We worked at this full time 'job' for months and months. Working with the AUNTIE SEWING SQUAD on FB, he and I made and donated nearly 9,000 masks and sent them to people in need all over the country.  Un-homed persons, migrants, our indigenous population...the forgotten folks. I was reminded once again that we are all only as healthy as our most vulnerable neighbors. It was a good feeling in the dark days to do something to help someone else.

The thing about making 9,000 masks is that you create a TON of fabric scraps.I knew that I could not just toss these pieces of fabric out. I made many, many things and finally landed on Bucket Hats. I'm sort of stuck on them probably because of the endless design possibilities.

Since then, I have also become keenly aware of and disturbed by, the monster that is known as Fast Fashion. We buy too much junky stuff that we throw away too quickly and replace it with more junk. In my space, I am repurposing textiles in all of my products. I only purchase thread, needles, and interfacing new. Everything else I purchase is second hand. Tremendous resources are used to create fabrics, we need to use them to their fullest before we are done with them. It's just the right thing to do. Enter Visible Mending. Mending can be a lovely design element! Through embroidery techniques directly on a garment or adding a decorative patch, the life of an existing garment can be extended with beauty and added style.

I walk the walk in all areas of my life and business. My sewing machines are vintage, my dog is a rescue, and my husband is repurposed. They are with me for the long haul!

So, wear a reclaimed fabric hat....no doubt friends will ask you where it came from. You can start a great ECO-centered conversation, and you will be an environmental hero!

How it’s Made

A bucket hat made of upcycled denim is a unique and eco-friendly piece of headwear. It is handmade using repurposed denim fabric, giving it a rugged and durable look. The hat is one of a kind, with a patchwork design created by sewing together pieces of different denim fabrics to create a colorful and distinctive appearance. The use of up cycled materials makes this hat an environmentally-friendly choice, as it helps to reduce waste and conserve resources. The handmade nature of the hat ensures that it is a high-quality and well-crafted piece, making it a special and exclusive item to own. I never pretend that they are perfect. These hats are created of imperfect materials by a real (admittedly imperfect) human in her home studio. Each has its own unique look--and i dare say, personality.

I source fabrics from many places. Thrift stores, friends' closets, auctions.....and of course my own 'stash' from a lifetime of sewing.

I then wash, sort, 'harvest' useable pieces...

I am sometimes inspired by a new trend, sometimes by a color or pattern in a fabric, sometimes I have no inspiration and just feel like creating and magic happens!

I cut, piece, iron, sew, (sometimes cuss) and stitch some more.

I wash the almost finished hat to encourage fraying--or just to test it's washability.

I press them a bit. I stitch on the label.

Photograph and list on my shop page.... post on social media.

Rinse, repeat!
