pirate hat pin kraken brooch
Large elaborate brooch has a rather small 1 inch pinback so as not to be too intrusive on your hat or clothing. Also helps it to hang properly by being able to have the pinback closer to the top. I find I am happier sewing pins onto my hats, as most hats are too stiff for pinbacks. Worth the effort. I have the distressed black musketeer hat with no less than 14 pins from various festivals and locales, weighs about 3 pounds now with all my adorments, but you know that hat is mine. Looks great on a bodice or vest, a pouch or purse, or glued over one lens of a pair of goggles.
