Mad Hatters Hat - Dusty Attic

I have always been a huge fan of Dusty Attic products.  Why??? Because I love how intricate and delicate they are and they pretty much go with any style you have.  But I also like how versatile they are off a page as well.  I have already created a Mad Hatters hat once before, which I was happy enough to sell.  Although you may never recoup of the cost and time you put into a project like that, I was happy to give to someone who appreciated the work involved and see them get some use out of it.

Which them brought me to the dilemma that again I am without a hat.  A good friend of mine is having a Birthday Celebration and we are going to High Tea, I have been wanting to go to one of these in ages.  We always seem to talk about it but that is as far as it gets. So YAY we are finally going!!!!  The venue looks beautiful and it does mention that you can dress up to make the occasion that little more special.   See this is why I need a hat, lol.... and I didn't need much prompting to make one.  With the other one gone along with that chapter of my life,  I needed to make another especially since I have found this new Site called PMS, its a site solely to scrap about yourself, and if I am wanting to play along I need some photos. 

But until I get those photos I do have pictures of my hat, I am really happy with how it turned out.  My first one was trial an error with trying to figure out dimensional.  I didn't have a pattern to go by so it was more or less cut and see what worked.  This one ironed out the mistakes in the last one. 

Products Used - Dusty Attic - Lrg Peacock feather, mini hour glass and Stop Watch, Prima & Kaiser flowers, Websters & Maya Road Pins, Tulle, velvet. Hot Fix gems, Prima pearls and Jo Sonja Opal Dust. I also used a Digital Frame from two peas. Thanks for looking and those who have been taking the time to leave a comment. Fi
