Altered Art - Goth Steampunk Hat

Hi Folks,

Well its back to normal land again now my hols is over, went so quickly but luckily enough I managed to buy some crafting bits and pieces while I was away so I could alter this hat.

I purchased a coachman hat from a steampunk/goth shop, removed the feathers but left the thick black ribbon and pearl bobbin pin, added some deep purple ribbon with a silver square ribbon slider which I glued on some deep purple gems, added some purple feathers with clear crystal gem stone bobbin pins and two purple bobbin pins. I am not sure if I should put a couple of metal charms on the other side of the hat yet but need to add a little padding inside the hat as even though its small its still slightly too big for me.

Well thats it for me today folks, I do hope that you all had a great Bank Holiday and until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol
