Not allowed (my rule) to while away the hours roaming the blogosphere until I get this *!@#% new website sorted out.
Lately, photos all look something like this... (By the way - these are the new 25mm antique brass flat o-rings.... cute, huh?).
Today there was a whiff of jasmine on the breeze and I realised that Spring was here. I looked up and around... and decided that COLOUR was needed in my mind's eye (and indeed my blog). I picked up my battered happy-snapper and took some shots around the studio.
The replacement Fedora. Still orange - and yes, it's Ikea fabric.
I used a combination of my medium-heavy interfacing and Vilene S320 in the crown, and it worked a treat. S320 is like a fine version of S520 and sadly you can't get it in Australia... yet (but watch this space!). You may be able to find it in Europe - it's well worth a try if you're into making stiff fabric hats or bags.
