I was delighted to see this project from Designer Terry Ricioli transforming a very ordinary white straw hat into a gorgeous floral and ribbon trimmed Derby Party hat. In addition, it is perfect for a Garden Party, ladies luncheon or church.
In fact, I can’t think of a little girl that wouldn’t love a child size version of this to wear with a sundress. You could make this a mother/daughter set.
It’s easy to make as well, simply weave ribbon in and out of the hat brim, then add a loopy ribbon bow and a silk flower.
You’ll find a beautiful tutorial on Terry’s blog, where she’ll show you step-by-step how to make this project.
Be sure to look at the other projects on Terry’s blog as well, she always has the greatest ideas using ribbon to embellish her projects!
‘Till next time…
