Miss Sally and her Blooming Hats and Bags
It is the feathers that give this little hat that something special..
I saw a photograph of a 1920's hat, it almost jumped out of the page and said "Make Me"
We were working in fimo so it just seemed natural to try and make the hat in fimo.
Now to figure out what base can one use to work on. I tried large marble, and it worked well, then low and behold the hat fitted Miss Sally perfectly, I was thrilled.
I have tried to make another exactly like it...but no way ....funny how that happens
I realized I could now make any flower I wanted. I could have artistic license with the flowers as hats can be anything they want to be after all.
I also have a thing about Silk ribbon roses..... wherever I look in our miniature world there is another silk ribbon rose.....
As you can see I later got totally carried away with making the flowers.
I smile when I think of the first silk ribbon rose I made, it was taught to me by one of my best friends of 25 years.
Dianne Yunnie was teaching our doll club how to make them.
