Mad As A...
well, yes. I'm back onto hats. It has been a while, what with the flu and one thing and another. I've been playing about with roses for a while, but this is my best rose fascinator so far, made from stitched sinamay. I think I'll make some in other colours, too, just to see what they look like, a yellow one, for instance... I'm interested in making hats for people who don't wear hats...usually... Small and unscary, my hats are, I think. I hope!
I've created a new shape, and am about to wire it, and put its bias binding on. These things are becoming second nature now, a learned process. It's interesting to watch myself learn, as it were...and to see how much easier I find the process as I do it more and more. My next step has to be to buy blocks so that I can make more felt hats, I love making those. Meanwhile, I'll stay with fascinators and small hats on bands or elastic. Like the rose, and this flower one, below. Poppy, do we think? I'm definitely on a floral kick!
