I have come up with a really cool idea for a Vented Hat – playing card suits. I have a top gasket cut that looks like spokes (Bicycle playing cards) and four side gaskets (heart, diamond, spade, club). The heart and diamond gasket are both red. The spade and club gasket are both black. I think I will leave the hat white. I don’t know what color the top will be yet, probably black, though. I got the gaskets and the holes in the hat cut today. Next week sometime, I will get the gaskets dyed and sealed, and the the hat will get ribbon and maybe a bit of paint. It should be a really stunning piece and I’m looking forward to seeing it completed.

Photos to come.
