Review and International Giveaway: Mel's Bells Cloche Hats






Mel's Bells Cloche Hats have a nice assortment of hats, all crafted from the highest quality of natural fiber yarns.  They also carry headbands too, if that is more your style. 

A lot of the hats have colorful flowers attached to the side by a large safety pin, allowing the flower to be removable if the wearer wishes so.  But, if you know you want to keep the flower in place, then you can ask Mel at the time you are purchasing the hat to permanently sew the flower on.  That's what I did with the hat I received to review.  I asked Mel to permanently sew it on, and she was very nice about it.

I received the Adult Size Slouchy Beret in Slate Gray with Removable Pink Flower to review.  As soon as I opened my package, I was in love.  Let me start by saying that I have never in my life been a hat person.  I'm just not.  My sister can pull off any hat she wants to wear, but my head was just not made to wear hats.  At least, that's what I thought until I tried the slouchy beret style.  Apparently, I've been wearing the wrong kind of hats my whole life.


I really looked at the flower of this hat, looking for which strands of the flower's yarn Mel used to attach to the hat.  I couldn't find them.  I mean, you can obviously see that the flower is securely attached, but it is very neat, not at all messy.

The pick flower has bits of orange and a touch of a deeper pink, really bringing it to life.  The hat itself hits comfortably and securely on my head.  And, while it is not a heavy material, the yarn does make you warm, so keep this baby in hand when fall and winter roll around again!

Mel also has a new line of hats specially designed for the warmer wheather.  They are made out of organic cotton and colored with low-impact dyes, so they are better for the environment!

If you want to keep up with the latest info and styles with Mel, then here are some social sites you can follow Mel at:  Facebook, Twitter, her blog, and Myspace.
