Bead Knitted and Bead Crochet Cloche Hat
embellished with handmade Torchon Bobbin Lace 2012
In early 2012 I designed and produced this 1920 cloche hat for the modern day bride.
Inspiration for this design come from my mother's wedding in 1928. Thus combining the two old crafts that have become a special interest with a need to past these skills on to the next generation meaning maybe one or two of grand children. This is where I suffered poor health and lost many fine motor skills in my left hand and it is only now in the year 2015 I am able to return to the crafts I wish to pass on before these skills are lost.
