What I didn’t tell you about those last hats, was that they were test hats. I made them to see how well the pattern worked, what needed adjusting in the instructions and other stuff like that. These hats, however, are the real deal. What I set out to create in the first place. The be-all and end-all. The-OKAY, you can stop now.
They are replicas(ish) of the hat that Paddington Bear wears. So, from the image on the DVD…
…came these two hats. One for my dolls:
and one for my Schleichs (modelled by Daffodil):
The Schleich one is flatter and (obviously) smaller than the doll hat, but it doesn’t look bad on the horses. Which is good. 😀
Charlie (the girl) is discovering the beauty, grace and power of the horse. 😀
