I made this clock out of a French beret as a participant in last October's Art and Soul Retreat in Portland OR.  The theme was Paris In My Soul.  I stuffed the beret with batting and sewed my Mother's vintage French mini perfume bottles to accentuate the numbers.  The clockface was printed, in reverse, on the computer, then transferred to sheer, lacy fabric which was supported by a thin, round piece of cardboard. Eiffel Towers were also computer printed, then cut out and attached over the original hands of the battery operated clock.  I used vintage hat netting for the bow and propped the finished product on a 10" silver painted wooden easel.  Viola!
