A Hat - A Crown - A ????
This is a secret but I am showing you my entry into our LH Wearable Art Challenge. The challenge was to use upholstery fabric to make an accessory. First I tried a belt... well it started out okay but then I couldn't get the fabric to stop fraying and I realized I did not want to emphasize my waist! I then saw a beautiful hat in a new book (I'll tell you about the book and give credit for my inspiration later). It was only a little picture but I figured out the engineering and used prairie points vs tie folds and changed a bit more. Lots of fun and I really like the hat. Now if I don't sell it at the Davis Artery show I'll be able to wear it to the Challenge meeting, otherwise I will have to make another or bring pictures.
This is another time that I am so glad I can just do what catches my interest. Sometimes I cause so much stress with the competitions I want to do and gifts I want to make. I know I am not alone in this habit and wonder if it isn't some left over thing from work! The things I might have accomplished if I had just stopped to wonder and ponder. This is something I am going to add to my "Remember This" list.
