Hats off to new ventures
After joining a wonderful milliner Katherine Elizabeth ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/InspiringCreativeMilliners/?ref=share ) and her "Top Hat" challenge in March I have been trying a new craft of millinery.
Hats have never crossed my mind if I am honest because I normally wear a basic cap for the summer and bobble hats in winter but this has kindled a new spark and world.
My first hot hat was successful but not as I wanted. This was a series of late night live lockdown classes and new activity.
I made resin sea shells 🐚 for this hat as dressings for it and added voile and crystals for sparkles.
Later in the month I created another version of it.
This one was dressed with rainbow ribbon hand sewn roses and crystals. This is very successful.
I have made a few different styles since. This is a head piece.
This is chocolate sinamay dressed with silk flowers.
Next are Ascot hats.
