Miniature Hats...

I promised pics of miniature hats and so yesterday I got some pictures taken of some of my ladies. I am currently working on a Ken Convention commission as someone saw my pink hat creation and wanted 10 of them! My commission pieces are in the works and will be much better than that prototype but here are the current ones I have finished. 

This all began because I recently had some rather horrid oral surgery I am recovering from and have been bored so I between icing down my mouth and surfing the internet and looking at pretty dolly pics and Pinterest, and eating soup, I decided to take some materials I had and try my hand at making some miniature hats. 








This is the pink hat that was commissioned by my client for her table gifts for Ken Convention. It has a gather around the edge that I am doing away with and it will be lined underneath. The tulle is vintage.  I already have two of these done, just need to finish the other eight. 




This is a 20's styled cloche hat with a jeweled hand beaded detail on the side. It molds to the head but you can use a pin to hold it on the doll's hair. 







Agnes wearing a red feathered creation with black silk bow detail on the upturned brim on the side. I think she does look smart in it. Especiallywith the black gloves and red purse.







Victoire is wearing a sporty little pheasant hat, perfect for those sporting events at the polo club or at the hunt club. I didn't have time to redress her in some equestrian togs. She looks spiffy enough to go hunting pheasant under glass, wouldn't you say? lol.





I think this looks so totally Dasha. Someone on facebook said it looks Prada...I was thinking Ralph Lauren. Oh Well, shows how much my fashion sense is dated, LOL...I am so 80's, LOL... anyhoo, she looks so snotty and sloane  ranger. See, see I am an 80's girl I betcha that term hasn't been used in America or the UK since the 80s or since Princess Di has been alive. 

I will take some pics of the finished commission hats on some of my ladies when I get time. Off to get some more materials today and do some errands! Enjoy the pics!~Lisa

Love them! Those are amazing hats.

There's a line in a Dorothy Sayers novel (I think, could be Lucia instead) about the cheering power of a frivolous hat.

What a nice collection. The girls are ready for any sort of outing or day at the track. Beautiful photos. :)

thank you! I have had tons of fun making them. I finished about six hats on the commission and took photos today, need to take better ones. Who knew making hats for dolls would be so much fun?

So impressive! I love seeing the hats of old movies and you've definitely captured that romantic feel.

Your hats are super cute! Sorry to hear about your oral surgery, but look what came out of all that pain.
