I made my own top hat! It was stitched together from freestanding lace, and then I decorated it.



I added the ribbon, feathers, and found the jem as a pendant. I glued a small hair clip to the bottom, and voila! A tiny awesome top hat.



Instant steampunk awesomeness.

It's done by machine embroidery. It's lace that stitches out on the machine on stabilizer that dissolves in water. Once you dissolve the stabilizer, the lace stays firm on its own! It's pretty nifty

I love it - I'm desperately trying to think of a way of working a fancy dress costume around it, it's so cute

Now this is where my jealousy of people who own embroidery machines comes out.  This is wicked cool.
