I wanted a hat block right away, but didn't want to cough up the $$ for one. Some of them can get very pricey. I got the idea for this project from an article on vintagesewing.info, wherein the author stated that you could use a hat that fit well, and cast it in plaster to make a custom hat block. So I took that idea and applied it using a sturdy adult size plastic party hat.
I bought some wool felt yesterday to try it out, I still need to shrink the felt. I'll post the hats when I complete them.

They fit loosely over his head, so cute, like a baby bonnet.
Boots wanted to move around a lot as my sister held him for the pics.
I probably took 14-15 photographs before I could get something recognizable. :)
I took some old hot pink shoes, and after removing the plastic hibicus on the top, cleaned and glittered them. I combined a fine glitter with a coarser glitter, and adhered it to the shoes with mod podge. I also adhered some sequin trim around the top of the shoes.

We went to both Walnut and Atlantic in the same afternoon, as they are very close together.
I found some buttons in Bonnesens (old fashioned five and dime store: if you happen to be in the area make sure to stop, they have everything from crepe paper to penny candy).
And I purchased some fabric for some dresses, a blouse and skirt.
