My goal was to make a realistic teacup hat using buckram and wire construction. I made my own pattern, which took forever, and spent way too much time agonizing over trim placement and the materials.
Covered in pink silk, decorated with pink braid, pink satin ribbon, pink/white dotted tulle, pink & white iridescent faux pearls, star and heart charms, silver heart charm for the "tea bag", etc. The "tea" is sparkly pink chiffon and and cream swirl is painted on with iridescent white acrylic.
Making crazy OTT lolita accessories is addictive and I can't stop - it's so much fun!! I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. What do you think?
Thank you for looking!
