Hat Making Table - Awards
Lovely Kat the Hat made a hat making table a few week ago which i loved, and it also inspired me to have a go at making one too.
It's not complete yet, but thought i would still share with you.
Many of the little bits dotted here and there are little bits and bobs ive had forever sent to me from Debbie of piskies and Kat. I always know one day weird and wonderful things you would normally not consider suitable for minis eventually come into use.
The little brass charms are from Debbie of tiny treasures and i just need to age them to suit everything else.
Now and again you make something you love and i really love this so far. Its especially nice because almost everything ive used so far has come from friends.
The bats were buttons i've taken the tag of off the back and joined to wire, they are inteneded as hat pins. To hide the bad join i kind of had to papier mache the back where the wire joined, paint black and then i used a mica pigment powder Debie from piskies sent to give them a nice green/blue shimmer and will reflect this colour through the table as i work further on it.
Please ignore the plastic stopper in one of the jars, just forgot to remove it and will do so when i fill with some buttons.
There will be a hat, but because i can't sew one little bit, i've asked my friend Debie from piskies to make some for me that i can dress. She's a whiz with a needle so really looking forward to them arriving. I wont go any further with this table for now until the hats arrive. It's a suprise what they look like and will pick the most suited to this table, dress and then use some of the dressings to scater around the table and the jars so it looks like the witch has been working on that particular hat. Thank you Debie for making them for me!
In my furniture stash i have another trunk and maybe i'll do something similar in that.
Thank you to everyone that has given awards to me in the last few days; its much appreciated! Will do my best in the next few days to give them to other bloggers.
