Chris Newsome never expected to create a bond with a toad and he definitely didn’t expect to be making hats for toads. Yet it happened! Last year Chris discovered the toad, who was living under the porch of his house. Every night the toad would come to great him and move on again. So one day Chis decided “this small creature needs help, he needs a hat”.
This is where the “hat journey” started. Newsome started to document the process on Imgur. Explaining which materials he used and giving all kinds of tips. “Foam paper seemed like a toad-friendly material,” he explains.
The first hat that was created was a fabulous pink top hat. Newsome even added some finishing touches in the form of a bright feather and a monocle. It was just a perfect match for his little toad-friend.
Newsome created a hatline containing a baseball cap as well as a cowboy hat that’s complete with a lasso. Even his dog “Daisy” got to try on one of the hats!
