How to... create a feather hat
This design combines paper piecing with a jaunty feather and elegant embellishments
1 Cover the front of a 13.5x13.5cm blank with script paper, leaving a narrow border down the left. Add an 11.5cm wide strip of spotty paper, with the script paper visible on the left. 2 Emboss a piece of 9x13cm pearlescent card and layer onto green card. Attach to base with foam pads. Feed ribbon then string through a ribbon slide then attach to front. 3 Cut a 6.5x10.5cm panel of blue grid paper to use as the base of the paper pieced picture. Die-cut a lemon glitter circle and attach, trimming away any excess. 4 Using the template, cut all the individual pieces of the image from card and paper. Add the face and layer the dress and hat on top. Layer on polka dot paper and add to the embossed panel. 5 Embellish the hat with a feather, bow and paper flower. Attach pearl earrings and a necklace. Add a greeting to finish.
