Boo Hat by Toni Gerdes

Happy Halloween! This 3-D witch’s hat is an excellent addition to my Halloween decorating. Two canvases were stitched and then finished into this stand-up witch’s hat. Stitching buttons are used for the “O’s” in Boo to add more dimension to the hat. These buttons have 64 holes and are stitched onto the hat; they are black and are filled with a Jessica with black beads on one button with orange thread & the other is filled with a Waffle stitch with orange threads. Threads include Silk Lame Braid, over-dyed cotton, Kreinik metallics, and many others. The stitches are a combination of old favorites, as well as a few surprises in this 3-D popper, topped with a fun bat embellishment at the top. This is an intermediate level canvas embroidery design on 18 ct. white mono canvas that finishes to approximately 13” x 13”.
