21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Mini Wellington Top Hat Tree Ornaments (image heavy) on: January 27, 2012 04:46:59 AM
Thanks so much for your kind comments.

I made the pattern for these hats myself but I did spend quite a bit of time searching the net looking for tutorials on hat making before I made the first hat.   This site was probably the most helpful.
http://www.lynnmcmasters.com/Flare1.html
My hats are much smaller and a slightly different shape than those produced in the tutorial I found. I used the same basic principles but  I developed some variations so that I could make my hat bases from cardboard. I made these hats by cutting small pieces of cardboard and then sticking them together with masking tape.  I used cereal boxes and there is no millinery wire in any of my little hats.

Thank you for asking for a tutorial but I went through quite of lot of trial and error before I ended up with something that worked and I was happy with.  And the process for making these is quite time consuming.  So I don't see myself making a tutorial.

As you saw in my last post that I made a doll with a top hat. I loved the hat so much that I decided that little hats all over my Christmas tree would look great. So I made some more hats.  Everything used to make these hats comes from the stash.



The hats have there own thread.

Each hat uses about 3/4 of a fat quarter of fabric.  The hats are also lined.
I plan the keep making little hats until I get I get bored of making them.

Wasn't sure where to post these but considering I use them as tree ornaments, I am posting them here.

I made a steampunk doll that needed a hat.  See doll here

And I loved the hat so much that I decided that little hats all over my tree would look great. So I made some more hats.

Total hat height from brim to top of crown is 8 cm



Here are some close ups of individual hats.











And My favourites

I made a Steampunk/Neo-Victorian doll using items entirely from the stash.  I actually made this last year, but hadn't posted photos before.



She has here own thread here, which also shows a full photo

There is a reason why I am posting this, which will become clear in my next post on this thread.

My doll guild was holding an exhibition of Steampunk dolls.  I made this doll in addition to the Steampunk Softies that I made.



27  COOKING / Dessert / Ombre Cake on: January 26, 2012 12:33:28 AM
Having seen lots of pics on the internet of ombre cakes, I decided that I wanted to have one for my birthday cake.  Icing the cake took longer than I thought but the results are so worth it.   I used 3 packets of vanilla cake mix. 

The icing is not quite as dark as it appears in the photos.

More destashing again this year  This is now my 3rd or 4th year and the stash still doesn't look as if it is getting any smaller. 

January is the month that I spend time making tree ornaments for next Christmas. When I get a chance I will show some photos of the ornaments that I have been making everything for these comes out of the stash.  Nothing new has been purchased for these ornaments.

Ok sold some more of my stamps. I have made $322 so far from the stamps I have sold.

I used up some of my beads and made this bead tree ornament cover.  Unfortunately I had to buy some more pink beads to finish this. I still have some beads left over.  Going to have to think of something to use the left over beads now.

Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator,  every year I have retired stock that I can no longer demonstrate.  I don't really call stamps, stash.  I call them tools.  Tools are things you need to reduce the stash.

Anyway, I sold some of my retired stamps sets today. I got $81.00 for 5 sets of stamps.  Just got 17 more sets to sell.  Then I can use the money to buy new stamps to replace the once I have sold.
