my millinery masterpiece!

I think after tonight's exploration into the fine world of millinery I'm officially hooked. I just cut out a cardboard circle for the base and cut a slit to the center of it to make a small cone then covered it with some black felt and went to town with the white tulle. Once I had it formed the way I wanted I hot glued it in place and added a few silk flowers I made a while back. It's secured with a few bobby pins. The whole hat was made with what I had on hand which was a fun challenge and I had blast making it. I'm all set for Friday morning. (yes it totally matches my fancy p.j.'s)

  4. OK, I tried to make a hat once and could see too how it could become totally addicting! Yours is adorable! Can't wait!!!!

  5. I love it. It reminds me of a piece that Kate from See Kate Sew made a few months back, not that they look alike. It's just that both are wonderfully over the top and gorgeous. LOVING IT!!!!!!!!!!
