When I told Tiffany I was making rat hats, her first reaction was to inquire about the color. I laughed and told her that the rat hats were not pink leopard print. Obviously that would have been the best possible color choice, but sadly the hobby store only stocks two colors--red and white.
If I had any sense, I would have left it at that. However, it occurred to me that I could make those red hats pink. All I needed was a little bit of craft paint and an old paint brush...Once that was done, I added a pink hat band and pink feather. It's not leopard print, but this rat hat is still mighty Purdylicious!
And look! It's not just a rat hat, it's a mule hat, too!
Can anyone think of a performance event for Emma and her rat hat? She looks so darn cute in it that it would be a shame to leave it at home.
