Halloween Hat Swap

For Heather's Speckled Egg Halloween Hat swap. I sewed this hat by hand, and decorated it with net, lace, ribbon and one of the big bottle cap cats I've been working on. I have a new appreciation for the millinery arts -- it's very fine hand-work, for sure.


There are two sparkly felt roses at each side of the bottlecap decoration -- I am not sure how well you can see those in this picture. I am just really pleased with how this came out, and hope my partner likes it! She sent me a tremendous, wearable hat! You can see it here:


BTW, that paper in the background is some of the beautiful flocked spiderweb paper I bought while I was in California. After I left I was kind of sad I hadn't bought more, then over the weekend I found two more sheets at our local Ben Franklin craft store!
