My lovely cousin Nellie posted this photo of herself wearing the barrette I made for her personal wedding shower gift. She said it was the perfect accessory for her to wear to a wedding she actually was attending.
I thought the barrette had come out beautiful but she makes it gorgeous! I must say I love her hashtags 🙂

So I got commissioned for a special job 🙂 My goddaughter Ava wants to be Kitty Cheshire from Ever After High for Halloween.
She has the costume but not the headpiece/hat/headband. She goes to Halloween stores and keeps reminding her Dad that she still needs her hat. Well anything he shows her of course is “not HER hat” ha ha. So that is where Aunt Nicole’s magic comes in!
Just finished it last night. It’s a bit of a combo between the cartoon and doll versions all rolled into one. That away no matter what version people think of her…it’s still “HER hat” ha ha. Instead of hard plastic (like the store bought one would have been) I made it out of a fun textured black felt that will be nice and soft on her head and much more “kitty” like. The ears are made from wired black fun fur. The headband was already covered in black fun fur as it was from a set of cat ears her Dad purchased at the store as a back up plan. It’s hard to see from the photo but the inside of the ears are made from glittery iridescent white foam sheets. The whiskers match by being made of iridescent sparkly pipe cleaners. The lighter lavender paint on the cheshire grin actually glows in the dark 🙂
