Today I thought I'd share something I completed a while back for a special customer: Rapunzel Hairdo Hats. At Christmastime, a friend of mine asked if I could make some custom hairdo hats for her three little girls. They loved the movie Tangled & pretending to be Rapunzel, so I made them these hats for their favorite fairy tale playtime.
I originally designed an enchanted princess hairdo hat for my daughter, which you may remember from Halloween:
I modified my original design for a full-on Rapunzel feel. My friend wanted something that would be long, but not drag on the floor. So I created hats with long, lovely fleece braids (ankle-length based on each girl's height), accented with silk flowers,
And satin bows to tie up the ends:
I made each one in a different shade of pink so they could tell their custom length hair apart, but they'd still be similar enough that there would be no chance of squabbling over who has what color (as one of 3 girls myself, I know all about that!)
Does it sound a little crazy to say even though I'm a grown woman I secretly want to wear one too?
These were a big hit with the three little princesses, so knowing they love wearing them is probably as good as being able to wear one myself!
