Just a mention of the Very Hungry Caterpillar at Needlebook made me think about the nature of holes, and indeed spots (which also came up). I wonder if the impact of the caterpillar in my impressionable youth is what has left me with a fixation with making holes in things. In a decorative, not destructive way! So I have been through my products and identified 3 cushions with holes in and there is a plethora of cut-out work in my home and wardrobe.
This hat is a work in progress, starting with a nice but tatty second hand hat. I cut off the brim and have punched the holes. Eventually I will add a new hat band or some sort of other decoration, probably one of my corsages and some vintage ribbon.
The corsage here is a similar idea, this time using old leather samples which were already circular and had a single hole in.
One of these days I intend to do a similar design in a suede skirt I made a few years back.
