Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Engineer by SewDesuNe Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Engineer by SewDesuNe
:bulletpurple: BLOG :bulletred: ETSY :bulletgreen: TUMBLR :bulletred: FACEBOOK :bulletpurple:

This is a style of hat that I've been wanting to do for AGES. It started with me doing a fleece version to get my feet wet Steampunk Critter Hats by SewDesuNe
It was inspired by kind of a steampunk Catwoman kind of notion -- I think in an alternate history her headgear would most definitely be an aviator cap with cat ears.

The idea just evolved from there, becoming a suedecloth cap (because while I like leather, I like suede even more, and suedecloth is washable) with minky lining (because minky is amazingly soft), and painted side panels so I could introduce more design elements to the whole deal. I also tried out different colors for variety and fun -- I've always thought steampunk can be loads of different colors if you play it off with the right motifs and design elements. The ears started as a tribute to Catwoman but animal hats are kinda what I do so I ran with it.

This one features little cat ears with a painted gear motif on each side. The outside is a kind of denim blue suede with light grey minky lining.
