The hat is done-not

The hat is done-or not.  Some how it isn’t as cute as the drawing. This outfit is resisting being made!




I may look at it again in a day or two and decide if the following changes need to happen.  Change 1) shave that corner off that sticks out over the ear and behind the tie.  In the drawing, the corner is hidden under the tie.  I could try moving the tie but then I think the hat will slip backwards on my head rather than pulling the hat down onto my head.

Change 2) change the lace so that it curves rather than bends where the tie attaches.

Change 3) I have the two layers in the brim but you can’t see the lower one in mine.  I think if I wire the top layer, the two layers would be more pronounced.IMG_20160828_194902688

Change 4) Smaller flowers.  Definitely, smaller flowers.
