Open Weekends

This charming bonnet is from the January 1980 Workbasket Magazine. Click image for much bigger.

After my initial laugh and eeewww moment, I thought about how the idea of a face on the back of a hat could be improved upon. A sculptured, knitted face. A happy face. A scary face. Or, alternately, a symbol such as @ or red circle w/slash. What do you all think?

Boy, you could have some fun with that one. Maybe a peace sign?

OK. I'm now obsessed. I don't have it yet. Parrot head, crack head, not there yet. What fun!

I think it's a good thing to wear when in tiger country. They don't like their victims to be looking at them when they pounce. I vote for a Kali face, with blood dripping from teeth.
