Fundraiser for MARS - Hat Auction
« on: February 08, 2012, 07:09:26 PM »
Handmade and Felted Derby

10-day auction for this beautiful handmade Hat by Knitmaster starts today.

Click for eBay auction:



This handmade and felted derby, with a handmade and felted contrasting band adorned with a lovely pin of an adult and juvenile bald eagle was made by "knitmaster" and is being auctioned as a fundraiser to benefit MARS (Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society).
 
This hat was lovingly made in honor of all of our beloved bald eagles and to the wonderful people at MARS, whose rescue and rehabilitation work is extraordinary and so important.

It measures 6 1/2 inches high, 9 1/2 in. wide, including the brim, and 7 1/2 in. inside the brim.  Inside circumference about 2 inches up from the open end is around 23 inches and has enough stretch that is should fit any woman.

Knitmaster is donating the proceeds of this auction to MARS.  She had made one very similar which Maj at MARS now proudly wears. (Mary Jane has listed it for her on her eBay account.)
