Fruit Reticules

Well, my strawberry is done!

I made the stem out of moss green velvet and used cording for the drawstring. Yay! The Tuesday night costuming group got a real laugh out of this one. And it spurred a flurry of speculation as to other fruits to make.

I had a question maybe folks here can help with, did they use fabric flowers/fruit for hat/bonnet trims in the Regency? I can't really remember ever seeing one that did but I'm far from a Regency expert...I was thinking little white strawberry flowers would be nice.

So cute! You should definitely go ahead with the ensemble :)

And off the top of my head, I can't think of any fruit decoration examples. I'll be on the lookout now!

Yeah, I'm kind of excited about the idea. I have a red/green changable silk I have been wondering what to do with and am now eyeing that...

Or even flowers, strawberry blossoms are very sweet. None of the examples I can think of have so much as a bud or leaf on them. Seems like plumes, lace and ribbons were the major trimmings for hats then.
