Just a quickie post to show you a “silly” I made for a colleague at work.
He was having a huge fancy dress party for the Eurovision Song Contest and was dressing up as Agnetha from Abba (the blond one) He was missing a “Fabulous!”crochet cloche hat (complete with flower on the side) to complete the outfit. Like this famous one…
Some leftover black Rowan Lurex Shimmer and some gold and silver Twilleys Goldfingering (“Goldfingering” got a smutty chortle in the office) and an improvised pattern, I created this….
(It’s a weird shape because I photographed it in a hurry at work with a notebook stuffed in it – sorry!)
I was especially pleased with myself for the flower too 😀
Such a fun little project !! I don’t often get a chance to make something wacky and glittery 😀
My colleague was thrilled and I am promised photos of the entire outfit…I’ll share if I get them 🙂
