Leo the Aviator

Grar!

ONLY at House of Honoré!

Satisfy your instinct for predation with this fuzzy little lion cap. Not only is he replete with eco-felt features and a spiky mane, but two (YES TWO) fuzzy fleece earflaps to keep you warm as the Sahara.

Don't tell Leo, but my secret nic-name for him is "Pain in the Ass Hat" because he takes a heckovalotta labor to create.

Refunds:

No refunds or exchanges--please select your items and sizes carefully. As each item is custom made, you are essentially paying for my 2+ hours of time and labor to make each hat. In the event of a structural problem (this has never happened)I will of course make necessary repairs.

I do make custom orders. E-mail me what you are looking for, and I can quote you the price of the project. I will begin construction upon receiving payment.

FAQ:

Q: How do I know what size to order?
A: Sizes are scaled by the circumference of the brim of the hat. Levelly wrap a tape measure around your head (in a straight line from your forehead back) to find the right size.

Infant (6mo- 1yr) 17 inch circumference
Toddler (1yr- 3yrs) 19 inch circumference
Child (3yrs- pre-teen) 21 inch circumference
Adult Medium 23 inch circumference
Adult Large 25 inch circumference

Q: OMG, the xxxxxx hat is so cute! Can you make it for a baby?

A: Yes. If the right size is not indicated, shoot me an e-mail and I can set up a custom order for you.

How do you make your hats?

Unless otherwise noted, all hats are crafted with alpine fleece, eco-felt, sometimes with fiberfill in the features.

People don't realize how much work goes into making a fleece hat by hand. I start by tracking the alpine polyestherbeast, found lurking only in fuzzy recesses of fabric and craft stores. After a cushy and comfortable polyestherbeast wrangle, I must select and slice the choicest pieces of the rich pelt. I save all parts of the polyestherbeast for use later.

Q: DAR> YOUR HATS ARE CUTE AND I WANT A CUTE HAT BUT WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR IT WHEN I CAN BUY A HAT AT MEGACORPOCONGLOMOMART FOR 17¢??!??1??

I make everything myself, having no slave labor, and having human rights.

Q: Would you do anything for love?
A:I would do anything for love, but I won't do that.
