Hat stand for a new born baby

 I added this hat stand to the series of stands today. I managed to weave it so its diameter is 14", the standard size for a hat for a new-born to three-month old baby. Since we have not had such a baby in our home for years, hats to show off the stand are hard to come by. The scarf sufficed.
 The stand is made from rattan cane. The weavers are #2 cane and are quite fine.
 A Dollar Store hat is a second prop I use to show off this hat.
 The undyed cane is a lovely ivory white. I also can make these using dyed cane in desert dust (tan) or in elephant grey.
The finished stand is 8" tall, very lightweight, but sturdy.
