Welcome to the wonderful world of Hats by Peach!

Peach has a website and Etsy store filled to the brim of every kind of hat and look imaginable. But that isn’t all she carries.

 Check out this precious scarf! The funkiest of yarn creates a wonderfully unique look without the bulk.

Hats


They are warm! And thick. The brims are bendable to whatever shape you desire, and they tighten up to fit via a drawstring on the side to achieve the perfect fit. They sit right above your ears.
(prices range from $20 – $48)

Scarves


They are fuzzy and oh so fun to play with! I love the fact that there’s little bulk, so you can still look cute without it feeling like a snowstorm is heading your way, kwim? They are the cutest fashion if left loose, and can add abit of warmth if you snug it up nice and tight around your neck.
($24.00)

More about Peach

Why hats? When did you start?  

I started crocheting about 30 years ago.  Before that I was a knitter.  My first “art” was potholders made on a loom.  That was in elementary school.  I sold them door to door to the neighbors.  In hindsight, they bought out of pity! 
I always wore hats.  When my Mother-in-law taught me to crochet, I made many different things and eventually ended up making hats.  They didn’t always look this good though.

Your style is so creative! What inspired you to take this leap? 

My hats were pretty plain to begin with.  Then a buddy of mine gave me some of her scraps, small balls of leftover yarn from some fancy shawls she made.  It was at a two day show when she gave them to me, so I sat at the show, worked up a funky hat, over-priced it (or so I thought) just to see what would happen.  It sold in 10 minutes.  That opened up a whole new world for me.  (By the way, I gave my buddy the money for the hat that sold, I was so grateful.)

What would you deem your style? 
  

Not sure I have a style.  I have more fun making the funky hats, but I do make conservative ones too.  But even they have character.  I have customers tell me they saw someone wearing a “Peach hat”, so I guess my style is recognizable.  I’ve already been out and about and someone will ask me if I’m wearing a “Peach hat”.  It’s funny when I say yes, and I’m Peach.

I make what I’m in the mood to make.  I don’t take orders. (Except for my family:)  If I wake up and feel like making red hats, I make red hats.  If I feel like doing skull caps that day, I make skull caps.  But for the giveaway, I will gladly give a hat already on my Etsy shop, or I will take an order!  That person will get the VIP treatment.  Yours was a special order too.

 ‘flat top’

 

bowler

What would you say to women who claim to not look good in hats?

If a woman thinks she doesn’t look good in a hat, I always tell them to try a flat top hat. The funky one I sent you is not technically a flat top, but with the funky yarn though around the top, it gives the appearance of a flat top. I have many flat tops on my site, as well as the bowler type like the plain black one you have.

9 times out of 10, a woman looks good in a flat top. And sometimes a woman just needs to put the hat on correctly. Just play with it.

Thanks Peach! I enjoyed that!

Here’s a 4 minute review video I shot of me and my pretty little hats and scarf. 

And you know how serious I am in front of a camera… (NOT) 🙂

Forgive the cheesy Mac music. It’s liable to ruin my reputation but oh well…

  1. I love the gorgeous blue Funky Fashion Hat with Novelty Trims and Adjustable Drawstring (#483) but then I saw the fabulous hat with the Sari Ribbons (#881) and it stole my heart! Must be that gypsy thing. These hats are cute enough to make you want to wear one even when you never wear hats.

  2. Hi Donna!
    You are too funny in your videos – you sure know how to have fun! I am wanting one of these for our winters – they would be so cozy come Nov/Dec. I am loving hat #9877 – I am a black color wearing gal, so this would suit me great!
    Maybe I can have the luck you had with Jeanne Oliver!
    Cheers
    Rochelle

  3. Dear Donna, I follow your blog, it’s the best. Also, I love both hats that you wore in the video. Anything in black or brown from the Peach’s Etsy store makes my heart pound and long for wintery days. Wait- still waiting for Spring here in Idaho… I could wear it now!

  4. Donna!
    You are hysterical! 🙂 Great review and I like the Woman’s Crocheted Chenille Cloche with 3-Petal Embellishment and Adjustable Drawstring hat by Peach! Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂
    Blessings,
    Mary

  5. ReallY? How do I pick just ONE hat? I mean, I LOVE the Funky Fashion Hat with Novelty Trim and Adjustable Drawstring. It’d be my top choice.
    BUT…
    How fun is the Woman’s Funky Multi-Colored Fabric Crocheted Hat With Braids? I dont know that I could pull it off, but I love it!

    Now this one I could def pull off and is a perfect blend od the other two: Woman’s Crocheted Fashion Hat – Sari Silk Fabric Strips – Adjustable Drawstring
    IN LOVE!!!!
    If you force me to pick only one….I will.

  6. I love the flat top one you featured on your blog. My 14 yo granddaughter would love it (and look smashing in it too). And the scarves…..love them.

    I am off to “like” Hats by Peach on FB and post about it on my FB page.

  7. The rusty bowler hat would go well with my jackets and I love the chenille scarf with various other yarns knitted in there. The jewel tones are delishous!Thanks for introducing this wonderful artist!

  10. You are such a hoot Donna!! And don’t you look ever so adorable in the hat & scarf!! So much so that after checking out Peach’s Etsy store I decided I like the one you have with the scarf the best!
