Mina (ivory/off white raffia)

I finally got the hang of stitching crowns like this, notice the ridges in the  vertical part of the crown, it has a nice effect.   The braid is a Swiss raffia, very light.   The brim is 2.75 inches and has a plastic thread sewn in the edge, which helps the brim keep taut and smooth.
