Hat inspired by a 1950 magazine of vegetable Easter Hats. Over 240 florets hand sewn onto tip. Cabbage moth hat pin detailed with freemotion machine stitching, hand sewn together.Hand felted egg cluster brooch. Long scarf ends in Broccoli leaves hand sewn in place.
These were so much fun to put together. Just tickled my fancy. The needle felted eggs were a blast.
For some smaller items to tempt those with hattitude also made some hat pins. Here are a few. Did not get a photo of the whole group- had some with glass beads hand sewn onto the felt beads.
Again, many, many thanks and great appreciation to Jen, owner of Artist Mercantile
for inviting me to have work in her Hat and Handbag Show.
