This is the before, I took off the things on there:O)
This isn't my hat, a lovely Lady at water fit,( I go 4 times a week)
sits outside as we wait for our ride, when she first asked me to go
out with her, I told her are you crazy LOL, me sit in the sun, yuck NEVER.
So the next day she brought me a hat so I could sit out there with her,
great,,, so out I go with this, dare I say funny looking hat and SIT in
that darn sun, that was a few weeks ago. It was an old hat and the
rim was falling apart the flowers and netting was coming loose,
okay I'm laughing now too. Today she, brings it in her walker and
handed it to me saying its really coming apart, "yes", I said, "well do
you think you could fix it", I thought, having to sew it would be the way.
Sewing a nightmare for me, the hand stuff is the worst, so I said
"of course, I'll take it home and do something with it".
Since I was the one wearing it I thought I'd make it more ME :O).
I took it all apart and looked around, and saw my rust ummm..
Plugged the glue gun in and put some rusted braided ribbon
around the brim,
I sewed and gathered rusted lace to put behind
a flower I made out of coffee filters,
Trailed a few rusted crocheted circles,
glued some buttons for the middle.
Now it's ME :):):).
New hat below with a few close ups, I've been waiting
to use the rust, love it.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful creative day.
I off to water fit...
