Sophie Trims Herself a Hat

I feel, my dear, that you'll need plenty of pluck and common sense. Your husband thinks he's quite amazing--which may be true--but I'm afraid he isn't always extremely practical.

Recently I re-read Howl's Moving Castle and thought, "What if Sophie trimmed a hat for herself? What sorts of enchanted things would she tell it?" I imagine it would be something like this. Howl isn't amused.

Pen and ink with an ink wash. I hope to give it some digital color one of these days.
