Big hat!- Crafty Cats Challenge #461

Good morning,another week has come and gone and I'm here with my DT card for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz. 
This week the optional theme is 'Female' chosen by our lovely Zora who is hosting this week. Our sponsor for this is Sheepski Designs
Visit Our Shop

The lucky DT were given some stunning images to play with ..usually I take ages choosing which to use soon as I saw the gorgeous Emmy's Hat I knew what I wanted to do with had to be paper pieced! I coloured her face and hair with my copics then paper pieced the hat, adding av little shading! It so reminds me of a hat I owned back in the day when 'hippie hats' were an essential part of any girl's wardrobe...along with a flowing maxi dress and platform shoes and long hair...those were the days my friends!
I hope you can find the time to hop over to Crafty Catz to enjoy the fabulous makes from my teamies...I think we all loved using these gorgeous images! Remember it's easy to play along...the theme is optional so anything goes!
Thanks for visiting , enjoy the weekend...let's hope for an improvement in the weather!
