Some of my scenic hats feature small figures in vignettes of various types- characters from stories, history, and world literature. The dolls are made using handmade heads, hands and feet from polymer clay on leather or cloth bodies. The characters are then dressed in costumes which coordinate with the theme of the hat using scraps of fabric, ribbon and leather. Each doll is about an inch to an inch and a half tall. Some hats just show the dolls on an appropriate background, and some use a little scene setting to display them. I try to use interesting fabric- either beautiful silk, velvet or brocade, or vintage items such as fabric and ribbon.
