|Party Hat from The Cutting Cafe|
This week's challenge over at The Cutting Cafe was to use the new Party Hats file. This set includes the traditional style cone party hat, and a really cute top hat. Since I had a special seven year old in mind, I chose the traditional style.
I was determined to use what I had on hand and not run off to the craft store (and run the risk of coming home with even more stuff!). I didn't have any ruffle, but I did have a spool of wide, shiny organza ribbon that even matched. I use a large basting stitch on my sewing machine and turned it into a ruffle and a pom-pom. I noticed after it was assembled that I should have used a smaller circle so more of my rosette would have shown, but I wasn't going to tear it apart and redo it when it still looked cute.
I am always happy when I can use a challenge project. This little hat went to a birthday party the very next day!
