Wow, it's been a long, long time since I've posted anything to my blog.  Shame on me!  I've been very busy with life, but am feeling a little more settled and have been working on a project that I thought I would share.  A good friend of mine asked me if I could make a favor for a birthday party for an oler woman.  She wondered if I had any ideas how to make it in the shape of a hat.  That started my creative juices flowing.  I searched the web but didn't find quite what I was looking for.  Then I found this template at http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_irVqhqkIGHI/S_2scI3cL1I/AAAAAAAAA-I/L5i5a54Q42Y/s1600/top_hat_top_blank.gif.  This became the basis of a hat.  However, it still wasn't quite what I had pictured in my mind.  So then I searched "church hats" and looked through all the images for inspiration.  After many (many) attempts, here is my finished product.  Thanks for looking!

The hat opens up.  You can put a treat inside.

I'm enjoying my vacation/snow day, listening to  my Bible and making 30 of these for my friend.
