Muskox and Buffalo Hats
What can I say about these Wild Muskox and Buffalo hats other than "WOW! That's Wild!" I have had a ridiculous amount of fun designing and completing these massive wookie hats! There have been three of each species - tow muskox with hooves! and two buffalo where the nose of the buffalo is the bill of the hat! Enjoy these awesome pictures and let me know if you need one of these beasts in your life!
This was the first buffalo hat I'd made and it was a fun learning experience! Buffalo leather is thick! this whole thing is hand sewn and has an inside beaver fur liner. This hat is special because I made it for a customer who hunted this animal in the wild. I really love making something special for someone who has a connection to the hide.
These two hats and loin cloth came from one buffalo cape. Only one hat could get the nose-bill and it was the dark hat, the lighter brown hat has a regular leather bill, and both have wool and beaver fur on the inside. What a fun order! To date this is the only loin cloth I've made.
