I had bought a package of miniature hat straw few years ago and I looked for it now, as I got interested in hat making. Before I started, I looked for some tips on the Internet and I found a useful tuturial from Lorraine's Miniatures. So, here is my first straw hat and basket.

I am making more miniature hats and I needed more embellishments for them. I bought a miniature rose maker and some ribbon from The Miniature Haberdashery (a charming shop!). I had to try a couple of times before I figured out how to make them. Different kinds of ribbons make different kinds of roses; I like organza ribbons the most.

I got the patterns from two great books that I have, "Sewing Dolls' Clothes" (27 projects from the Dolls' House Magazine) and "Making and Dressing Dolls' House Dolls" (by Sue Atkinson). I cut the pattern pieces from thin cardboard and glued the fabric on them. I very much enjoyed making the hats and I want to make more! I think I will try to make a straw hat next.
