Since the beginning of the spring little bug has lost a couple of sun hats here and there. This morning the only one left was this one... a bit blah especially if you prefer pink and frilly.
This is how the hat got transformed today...
For the transformation i used:
* 1 1/2 inch wide pink satin ribbon
* 1 1/2 inch wide pink organdy ribbon
* Some scraps of green satin lining fabric
* Coordinating thread
Stitch in zig zag about halfway through the ribbon and pull as you go until you have enough to form a flower
For the center of the flower I used a short piece of organdy ribbon that I shirred
For the leavess, cut the green lining fabric in the shape desired for leaves and look at this tutorial to finish the edges
Stitch the "twig side" of the leaves and pull to give some body
Stitch your ribbon flower starting from the center and wrapping it around itself then add the leaves
It looks a bit like a peony
And let your little bug strut her stuff
