Red Hat Block Day 1


Red and Purple Block Day 1
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
Well, for those of you who guessed "Red Hat Society", yes! You are correct!

It's not that I'm into that. I've haven't quite reached the right age yet, but I thought it would be a really fun theme to do and so far it is!

I did the little hat with red velveteen using the freezer paper applique technique. For instructions, click here.

I removed the freezer paper from the back by cutting a small slit in the foundation fabric and the background fabric.

To give the hat a 3D look, I added a bit of poly fiberfill before whip stitching the opening closed.

The hat will be embellished more but I'm holding off for the time being until I decide on what embellishments I'll be using on the rest of the block.

Pam I love this! Don't suppose you would consider selling it? Or doing another one as a commission? No? I didn't think so - LOL!
