and she made a bunny hat for ME!


Josie Armand Smith is a milliner and genius crafty person of great loveliness, living near Cheltenham. When I was visiting for the Literary Festival we met up for a cup of tea, me Josie and baby Bea (and Bea’s dad too).

I just could not believe my eyes – or luck – when Josie produced, from under the table, a bunny hat all of my very own!
It has many different bunnies rushing around the hatband, with a bunny build-up at the side…



and bunnies that meet at the back.



Each bunny has, I like to think, it’s own distinct personality, and it’s own name too.

Here we all are together (Bea has a bunny hat too).



And here are Josie’s latest tweeted felt creations that has us all utterly charmed…




I hugely recommend checking out Josie’s website and following @josiemakeshats on twitter to see what brilliant things she has up her sleeve next!
