My attempt at making a Hat to SURVIVE--Survivor...

I fail as a person who can do any sort of creative.

Challenge number Eight for Supah Survivor was to make her a hat for the Kentucky Derby...sigh. All we could use was TISSUE PAPER that you stuff in Gift Bags and TAPE. (Might as well cut off both of my hands and my pinky toe). This is going to be my downfall, even worse then me screaming over a cricket I think.

I put shame to the female gender.

My niece was there to help and model and I thank her for that.

Sorry, had no time for a VLOG. So you get it picture style:

There you go Supah... I'm "modeling" the hat for you. I put lipstick on you guys, but I swear that's it, the red in the cheeks is a sunburn from Havasupai and running... PROMISE!!!

And my niece modeling the hat...

Front View...

Back View...

And NO, it's NOT a Mexican Sombrero--That wouldn't even be fair to even compare it to that.

What would YOU say it was on first look... even I didn't tell you and give it away? Please I'd love to know.

Someone said licorice ropes... bwahahaha!

Love,

ARen't you supposed to drink Mint Juliups AFTER the hat is finished?

LOL, just kidding. It is, um, a nice hat.

I guessed it was Saturn.

Thought maybe you were letting it double for Supah's challenge and your kid's science fair project. ;)

I kid! I kid! This was one tough challenge!! Great job!

DCHY said...

I would've thought "Oh no, not another Project Runway wannabe" upon seeing your hat. ;)

I actually really liked the weaving bit - brilliant! As for the overall "wearability" issue... well, ummm... kind of reminds me of that Glitter Gone Bad blog :)

This hat reminds me of the one in "Three Men and a Lady", one of the guys was looking for ways to sabbotage a wedding so he looked in the back of the church and there was this hat sticking up at the back row which he mistook it for a hand being raised when the part about "if there be any among you have any reason why this union shouldn't go on"...

Even though you claim you are non-creative, I'd totally pick this hat and wear it to a derby. It is sooooo A. Hepburn-ish..LOL. My vote is on you, girl.

Well, I think it looks very much like the lovely easter bonnets I put on my last post. I LOVE HATS. BUT neve-ah eve-ah wear them as a rule.
Um Shelle, I really like you and all, really I do,BUT you are right.
Creative??????(tee,hee)
Just like me, I cant make anything (but trouble)
God didn't put one creative cell in my body.
I let others make and I BUY.

I am not sure WHAT I thought it looked like. The center of the hat looked like those projects we did in elementary school where you weave the colored paper.

Shelle, I'm impressed!! For tissue paper and tape, that's a pretty rockin' hat!! Too bad you didn't take it with you down to Havasupai! You woulda made a statement! PS - I'm jealous you went to Havasupai! Next time I'm in.
