Almost finished. In the book "The Wee Free Men", Miss Tick is wearing a straw hat with paper flowers that mechanically transforms into a witch's pointed hat. So I started from a witch's hat and twisted and sewed it down, before adding paper flowers (grubby from continually falling to the ground and being rained upon.)
I made these boots from felt. Here they are drying in the sun. I will finish her props later this evening. Now my only quandrary is her stand.
