When I started feeling better in March, the first thing I did was pull out my craft and hat making supplies! For about three years now I have been collecting supplies for making little hair-pieces and fascinators, and I was so excited to finally have enough energy and enough supplies to make a few little hats. I didn't have the energy to make everything in one day, so I kept the hat-making supplies out for a week and worked on them a little bit each day. Adelaide helped me with some of the hat-making, and we thoroughly enjoyed our girly and crafty time!
These are the four little hats that Adelaide and I made. The top two are for me, and the bottom two are for Adelaide. My hats are feather pads that are secured onto headbands. I also added two antique pins from my Oma. Adelaide's little hats are fascinators, and they will secure onto her head with an alligator clip.
Here is a close up of the black curly goose feather pad on a headband.
These are Adelaide's fascinators. She helped to pick out the feathers and buttons and ribbon. The pink fascinator is her favorite.
We had such a fun week making fancy little hats together. And soon after creating our hats, Adelaide had an occasion to wear her new, pink fascinator! A friend came over for fancy tea, and we each wore a hat. I will share tea party pictures with you next week!
