My first project was inspired by a friend commenting that I needed a little top hat to go with the Skirt of Awesome. And dammit, he was right. I used the Fleece Fun pattern and made one with fabric left over from the skirt, and have been playing with it since, trying to get the materials exactly right.
|The decorative element at the band is a button. I originally|
had a brooch, but it was too big and heavy. I still have to
attach this to a headband, and sew things on.
|Currently safety-pinned on, I have to sew it yet.|
|New hats! The purple/black houndstooth came with tan and red feathers -- ew.|
While I was at Joann's trying to find bits and pieces for the things I'm making, I stupidly glanced at the licensed fabric (just in case they had the Girl Power stuff or any related things). And I found some moody-colored stuff with the Disney villains on it. Then I looked at it online just after midnight, and saw that it was 40% online (web-exclusive sale) and only 25% off in-store. I couldn't resist. I started planning the skirt and an overskirt to wear with it. And then I checked online this afternoon... and saw that 2 of the 5 fabrics I ordered are already "unavailable" and I had to go get them in the store. At the higher price. (grrr...)
|Won't that make an awesome skirt???|
I think it's time to break out the vodka.
