Creative Competition Pictures!

November 3rd, 2009

At long last the bugs have been fixed and we can post pictures again! Thank you to the IT team. So we’re not wasting any time and bringing you some creative competition pictures straight away.

Patsy McMahon created this delightful hat shop. Here’s her story.

My inspiration came from my Nan – Harriet. She always said she would love to work in a hat shop. So 50 years on I have made her own to be proud of! Harriet is standing behind the counter waiting for the first customer of the day. Her hat is on the chair at the front of the shop. I made the kit up, painted the walls to look “distressed” and used the stencil paints elsewhere. The mats are made of felt and the letters are individual transfers. Some of the hats were gifts some home made. The curtains are made from linen and trimmed with lace and the Victorian lace was used on the main window. I used kebab sticks for the curtain poles. For the pots on the outside I used card craft.
