Day 52. Funky Fez Hat

My husband is a Huge history buff. We’ve been filling the house with historical related podcasts. We just finished the rule and fall of the Roman Empire and moved onto the Ottoman Empire. They discussed fez hats and the ban on them due to tensions with Austrian trade.
What caught my attention was i was actually first introduced to the fez via vintage American smoking jacket characters in the movies. Haha. Well I’m On my ridge and vintage kick, so I came up with this fez design while we listened to the Ottoman Empire tapes.

  1. I made two last night and my hubby loved them. He wants me to make mini ones for bears for the Shiners Children hospital. That will be so cool. As Dr. Who said “Fezzes are cool”. LOL
