I hope everyone is doing well.......Me??? I'm takin' another break from my re-organizing and cleaning. Yes folks, the mess is that big! I thought I'd show you the hat I'm sending off to my swap partner "Barb" in Vivians awesome Halloween Witch Hat Swap. I started with a brown paper mache hat form from Michaels, and proceeded to cover it in fun Halloween paper. I got some frayed streamers from Crafty Secrets and stitched a gathering stitch down the middle. I then hand gathered the streamer into a fluffy garland that I then hot glued around the edge of the hat. I printed out the moon and cat image on my photo paper, and added orange lace to the outside of the moon. I glued the cat onto a small section of fencing that I got at Michaels, which I painted with Tim Holtz "picket fence" crackle paint. I bought the topper at Michaels as well, and then glued on an ornament that says "the witch is in."
I don't have pictures of the underneath, but I covered the bottom of the brim with paper, as well, and created a gathered fabric lining for the interior. The whole project probably took me an hour, but I think it turned out really cute. I'll post images of what I get in the swap when I get it. I'm sending a lot of other goodies along, and I hope my swap partner will show them off.
I've cleaned up a few more graphics for ya'll.
These next graphics are scans from a vintage women's magazine I have. I just love all the vintage fashions, so I hope you can use these too.
This is another cleaned up graphic.......isn't it just adorable?
Have fun crafting, and please send me piccy's of anything you make with the graphics I give you, I'd love to see them.
