Up-cycling 1940's......

 No cards made this week but another bit of sewing...
As many of you know we are 1940's reinactors.....lots of clothing is very expensive so I bought this Ferdora hat on EBAY and did some cutting and stitching, adding some ribbon a feather and this is what I ended up with.....

                                            Side view.....
                                                                Back View
                                                 Front View

As you know these hats are worn on the side of your head and tilted forward, when we are next in Costume I will let you see the full effect....I shall be looking through the charity shops now for more hats to redesign....

Back to card making tomorrow...
Enjoy your weekend...

Anne
