Inspiration: A “Pumpkin Hat” contest.
Creation: I didn’t want to make a typical orange hat with a green stem on top so I started brainstorming… and thought of my garden & growing pumpkins…. The first step was creating the base of “soil”, filled with holes for the 12 feet of i-cord vines. (Inspired by the Bowl of Spaghetti hat by John Brinegar.)
Then I made up about 8 little pumpkins to be growing from the vines:
Once they were sewn on, it was complete! It is an adorable hat & Mr. Tamdoll is such a good sport, he wore it around town already.
I’m looking at these pictures & noticing that the colors look different in each – 3 photos in 3 different settings… worked on it in too many places to be consistent – sorry!
How do you get inspired or think out of the box?
