This straw hat originally had a wide brim, which I removed. Without the brim it resembled a 1950s style pillbox hat, so I added a length of leopard ribbon to the bottom of the hat, a generous amount of faux rhinestones and netting dotted with very faux rhinestones. I gathered the netting with long stitches so it would fan out and in the center of the fan I added a pretty vintage brooch that I purchased in France. You can almost hear this feisty leopard roar! Grrrrr!
