Etsy Pick: Chic Soccer Ball Hat

Because I believe in supporting your community first and foremost, it’s time for another local Etsy pick here in Dublin, Ireland. I was pretty delighted to stumble upon the clever work of Maria Pantel. She clearly has a sense of humor about fashion with her Y-TOP, repurposing a pair of classic men’s Y-fronts (tighty-whiteys to us Yanks). And she also seems to have some pretty advanced knitting skills. I want to curl up with this pretty red scarf. But best of all is the fantastic hat she made from an old soccer ball washed up on the beach.

I find it completely fascinating and strangely gorgeous. It’s like a relic of my youth…a glittering, nostalgic memory of years playing soccer and then growing up.
