A new HAT-titude!

Last week I picked-up a few plain hats...
and decided to add a little something to them...

a little "spunk"...

I gathered some of my favorite "tools"...
vintage buttons...
and began!

for one I stitched three monochromatic roses in
raw silk, muslin, and jersey...
using vintage buttons for the centers...

for another I just created one large ruffled raw silk rosette
with a sequin and bead center...

and for the last one I chose to make a removable posie pin
in bold, bright colors...
and when the mood strikes...
a new pin can be created...
for a whole new "HAT-titude"!

Happy Monday!!!
Many Blessings!

*p.s.- I noticed Target has their hats on sale this week!
A perfect excuse for you to create your own "HAT-titude"!
