Hats by Nancy Stroessner of Prairie Sun Design

For fall, fabric artist Nancy Stroessner of Prairie Sun Design makes hats. Nancy’s Russian-style hats, made from polar fleece, are structured to have shape on the head and still be soft enough to stuff in a pocket. Some have a contemporary look, like her Hudson’s Bay white-with-stripes design. Others have vintage-style detailing and button accents to give a vintage 1920’s look. Colors include white, brown, red, green, and autumn orange. Also look for Nancy’s fabric purses and pillows. Check out Nancy’s fabric creations at Etsy.
