Ribbonwork Hat & Coat Ornaments

Seeing the fabulous hats at the royal wedding inspired me to revive some of my ribbonwork hat & coat ornaments. They have mostly sold out of the shops they were in, so I was due to make more anyway. 

This time, instead of making them one by one, I've decided to approach this dozen assembly-line style.  I made a couple dozen leaves to start, then began sewing the gathered flowers.

Now I'm beginning to bring everything together into a corsage with embellishments, feathers, beads, etc. Here are some I've made in the past few evenings at my Night Studio.  Each one is about a two movie project. I've decided to begin selling some in my Etsy shop as well as at Arjuna in Woodstock, VT and here in the Itty Bitty Art Gallery.
