Hats

I've been thinking perhaps I'll become a milliner for little people. I'm having as much fun making these little hats as I am making dolls. Bonita is sporting a petite top hat with a feather and vintage trimmings.


Before Hurricane Katrina ripped through our little home in the swamps of Mississippi I had a huge collection of vintage fabrics, jewelry, textiles and notions. I always just liked them and kept them around using them in small projects. Man how I wish I had those items now that I'm incorporating them into my dolls. I guess that just means I need to start hunting again, which is really a big part of the fun anyway.

I was so sad to hear that you lost a collection of things, I am glad you are okay after such a scary ordeal but I empathize with you, missing things that meant something to you.
