I hunted all over the house for a form to make bonnets out of hatstraw, and found a medicine dispenser just the right shape and size.
It is easier to get the hats the same shape and size if there is a form to work around. I stitched the hatstraw tightly, working over the hat mold to shape the crown part of the bonnet.
I stitched the brim part loosely, and free-hand, so it would flare a bit. The plastic medicine dispenser is a bit slippery. I think I will ask my friend if her friend can make me a tiny wooden hat-form.
Constance thinks it makes a nice-shaped bonnet…
In fact, three girls (so far) are happy with them!
I like making Hittys smile!
