Are you playing along with Fashion Forward? If so, post your link here and I'll give you three extra entries into my giveaway :-)
I mentioned some time that I love hats and have quite a collection - I thought I'd share a few of them here for this week's Fashion Forward. I _hate_ photos of me, you have no idea how hard it was for me to do this!! And I've never tried taking photos of myself before, I took soooo many; if these are the ones that got through, just imagine how awful must have been the ones that didn't?!
Here's my favourite 'Oops!' shot:
How rubbish is that?! I am in it though - look, can you see my nose on the right?!
Anyway, first of all, here are some Baker Boy style caps - a knitted white one, a black cotton, and a beige suede:
Then I have a reversible sunhat. Here you (nearly) see me modelling both the stripy side and the pink side! And also a woven hat in rainbow colours:
And then there are some warm winter hats - a fleece beanie (man, I look gorgeous in that shot!), a knitted thing with earflaps and tassels, and a lime green skull cap type hat:
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, those are the photos that actually made it through the vetting process... You should've seen the ones that didn't!! (You can't though, they are SO deleted....!!)
And yep, we do have a lot of books :-) That's my contribution to the interior design aspect of this Fashion Forward thing. Books are not only fashionable, they are _vital_!
Oh, and the other thing was that I wanted to tell you a little bit about how I made Joyful Mel and SuperMel (who I posted yesterday, if you missed it and have no clue what I'm on about!) I basically went through my box of fabric scraps and used Sizzix dies to cut the shapes: Doll Body, Dungarees, Dresses, Girl and Boy Hair, Shoes, hearts from Heart Border, and the mask was trimmed down from Sizzlit Buttons #3 die. Then I lightly stuffed the bodies and stitched it all together. In theory the clothes could be removed, as the fronts and backs are just joined with overstitch, they're not attached directly to the bodies (with the exception of a stitch or two to stop the shoes falling off!)
I was kind of tempted to post Joyful Mel and SuperMel as my Fashion Forward contribution - they have great fashion sense ;-)
