So I made this hat this morning.
|Guess what, Mom? You are now a red-head.|
|A few wispy tendrils of hair in the back suggest a head full of Anne Shirley Blythe hair.|
For the inside of the hat, I made a headband of soft fleece so that her forehead doesn't get itchy. Between the fleece and the hat, I glue gunned the hair. The hair is from a wig I used for Halloween awhile back. Yes, I should have taken pictures of the inside. But I've already propped Disembodied Ginger Lady Head on my mom's kitchen counter top for maximum shock value for when she gets home from chemo today. I'll take pics of the inside later. Or, if people are interested, I could make another similar hat and make a tutorial.
I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, but there is still the practicality test it needs to pass. Like, how does is look on an actual person's head? And does it itch? If it doesn't pass my mom's test drive, at least I can say I tried, right?
