I knew for the longest time that I needed a hat to wear at TBAI for the tea party. Should I buy one, find one in the closet, make one?
I consulted with several experts – there was no real consensus. Actually, I think it’s kind of difficult for others to offer advice on an idea that exists only in one’s brain.
After dithering for a while, I decided that I would make it.
So that’s what I did . . .
I bought a pattern (haven’t done that in ages!)
and went to work.
I created it with some fabric and poster board that I had on hand. I also used the computer a bit
and the printer
and the iron.
All in all, there was actually very little sewing involved. Some, but not a lot.
It was a surprisingly fun project – especially adding the teddy bear buttons with photos of a couple of my bears.
And I promised that I would take a photo of it. I didn’t, but someone near and dear to me did.
Here it is.
