Queen of Hearts
I've been working on a couple of fabulous made-to-order hats for bridal customers recently. This design is for the bride to wear at her wedding reception, and is based on the scene in Disney's Alice in Wonderland where the cards are painting all the white roses in the Queen's garden with red paint, lest they lose their heads!
I popped it on to model the design, and was rather enamoured of it. It's a red satin heart-shaped pillbox style embellished with hand painted roses, foliage, playing cards and paintbrushes. By the way, this is what my hair looks like if it is allowed to dry naturally - a cross between Doc Brown from 'Back to the Future' and some outcast from A Flock of Seagulls.
