Okay! This is the last of the Tea Party details and I’m getting anxious to show you some of the new things I’ve been working on, but since I know you want to make some of these hats just. for. fun., I’m sharing some close-ups and a little photo step-by-step. The supplies I used included: felt, tulle, pearls, feathers, silk flowers, flower ribbon, plain headbands, and some pieces off a feather boa. Basically, I just started with a piece of tulle and tied or fluffed it into something “big.” Then, holding it in my hand, I started grouping some flowers and/or feathers around it. When I thought I had a grouping I liked, I hot glued it into place on a small square of felt. Wearing the headband and looking in the mirror, I held the glued arrangement up and figured out the correct positioning on the headband. Then I ran back to the glue gun and glued it right in place onto the headband, covering the back with another piece of felt.
For Addie’s hat, I glued strips of flower ribbon onto a circle of felt, then glued elastic to the bottom, with the ends meeting in the center of the felt circle bottom, and then covered the elastic ends with a backing of felt. I knew she would never keep a headband on her head, and this method worked out perfectly.

the hats are absolutely darling, as are your girls.
Oh, this is just too gorgous! These would make the most beautiful fascinators for Race Day as well. Just beautiful!
