Home of Fast Women and Beautiful Horses

Wait.  Strike that.  Reverse it.  (Or not.) 

It’s our claim to fame, and we embrace it with the strength of ten-thousand thoroughbreds.  I’m talking, of course, of the Kentucky Derby. 

Despite the recent uncertain weather, topped out Ohio River and flooded streets, the town is all abuzz as we get ready to celebrate our two-minutes in the spotlight.  And no Kentucky woman in the spotlight would be caught at any Derby soiree without her fancy Derby hat.

Luckily for our friend and D.I.Y. Louisville member Craft E Magee, she’s all ready for her close-up at Churchill Downs.  Using sun hats she purchased at Target for $2.50 and fancy supplies from her crafting stash, she turned plain hats into these stunning trackside showpieces.

I love these so much, I might have to plan a Derby party just so I’ll have an excuse to make my own!  Thanks, Craft E Magee, for sharing your hats with us!
