Hats Off To You
Now Playing: a not-quite random gluing of things around the studio
Topic: New Work

I attended a ladies tea last night. The invitations said "hats encouraged." Not being a 'hat person' I did not have one to wear so earlier in the week I made my own.

The brim is constructed of 300 lb watercolor paper. I made the crown of suede covered paper and shaped it by creating darts with my sewing machine. A lace overlay on the crown is from a drapery sample book. The brim was trimmed out with a 2" lace and then the entire brim was covered with the blue suede paper.

I finished it all off with some silk flowers and a triple bow of blue organza ribbon. Everything is held together with Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue. (I ended up lining the inside edge of the crown with more lace so I could use it to pin the hat to my hair and hold it on securely)

Here is me modeling it before going to the event.
