Well, I loved them and they made appearances at several tea events as decorative table elements. Then I saw this advertisement:
I was inspired! What else to do with a fiber art petit four but turn it into a hat!
So I took the larger of the two, some button thread, and a hairband I picked up for cheap at Ross and just stitched it on.
I must say that the hat was very much admired at Comic Con and this is my new favorite thing. I have a whole collection of headbands from Ross and my new instinct whenever I see a silly object is . . . can I make a tiny hat out of it? I'm getting very Ivy-ish in my old age in wanting to put everything on my head.
See a silly object? Just ask yourself. What would Ivy do? Forget Tim Gunn's "Make it Work." Make it into a hat!
And then drink tea wearing it, of course!
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
