... I just need to get to the Derby!
Besides all the hats to try on that I wrote about in yesterday's post, there was also a challenge for the day. A challenge to decorate our own Derby hats.
I found out late about the challenge so I didn't have time to pull out all of the stops and actually MAKE the hat to decorate.
So I grabbed a rather plain hat I already owned. I had always planned on blinging it up a bit, now was the perfect time.
I had this feather pick I wanted to use...
...and a trip to Goodwill gave me this beautiful tie that worked perfectly with the colors in the feathers. And since it was a Derby hat, there had to be a horse and some roses! (The horse is a silver pendant I bought in Mexico).
After some clipping, sewing, gluing and a few burns, I was satisfied with the results.
My very own Derby hat!
