Flight of Fancy - A new series
The first Flight of Fancy was a gray beret with green feather medallion. It received some nice compliments online and sold quickly when sent to Artist Mercantile. I also liked how it looked and enjoyed making it. Luckily, was able to acquire 4 more nice large berets. Here is a rich brown one. Finished it up on Friday and shipped it off to Artist Mercantile with Damsel; and a group of hat pins.
This week am working on more feather medallions and Flight of Fancy berets. Plus more hat pins. Am thinking of calling the hat pins "hat sticks" as they can be used solely for adornment or for function. The stems are strong and sharp, they actually can pierce commercial felt hats as well as fabric hats and hand felted hats.
