HATS OFF


My original intention was to applique this hat to the back of a denim jacket with ribbons coming up over the front of the shoulders - you know, as if you slid your bonnet off the back of your head.  Of course, it slipped between the cracks in the woodwork and Frannie is too old for that look now, so I'll have to turn it into something else.  It's large.  I used a dinner and salad plate for the templates.  Still like it.  I've always liked hats.

S.W.A.K.

Trivia:  Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe (October 20, 1890? – July 10, 1941), known professionally as Jelly Roll Morton, was an American ragtime, early jazz pianist, bandleader and composer.  He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.  This info was taken from Wikipedia.

Such a great idea!! I'm sure you will come up with something else equally as cute.

For the capri sun bags, I just sewed them together - 2 each for the front and back, 1 each for the sides and then attached 2 to the bottom and added ribbons for handles.
