I called her back...somewhat curious as to how she found me...and left a message that the easiest way to catch me would probably be email and left my email address.
So we've been emailing back and for for the last 24 hours; she had kids who are going to be doing, I think, The Wizard of Oz and they were interested in making costumes similar to ours.
I answered the questions the best I could...I really wasn't involved in actually putting the hats together, for one thing, and, um, it's been a year for another...but I *think* I got the story straight.
But one thing remained...to post pictures of the petal patterns. So, dug from the archives, I bring you the prototype patterns:
I really wish I'd taken more photos of the process, but I really didn't think anyone would actually want to try it.
So, Sydney in Nashville....good luck!!!
