Easter Idea Day 3 - The Mad Hatter

One of my favourite characters from Alice in Wonderland is The Mad Hatter, completely bonkers, in some versions quite sinister, but Johnny Depps portrayal to me was probably one of the best.  Biased because Johnny Depp is simply, pwhor!!!

Making Up:
Embroider a 10/6 on the square (use image for reference) and attach to hat at an angle.  Use ½ a metre length of orange ribbon wind round the hat, (see picture for guide).  Use scissors to cut a V in the the bottom of the ribbon for detail.
Use a small feather for decoration.  You can add mini hat pins, brooches or anything a la Johnny Depp Mad Hatter character.
