This is Maeve. She used to be a boring white polystyrene foam head and I thought she would look much better if she was embellished so I decided to decoupage her.
She is covered in the words of Maeve Binchy so, naturally, I called her Maeve. This was my first attempt at decoupage and as you can see poor Maeve has a few wrinkles, but she is in good company in this house.
Today I put her to good use as a model for my Downton Hat. I saw this pattern here and loved it so much I had to knit it. To be honest, it looks better on Maeve than it does on me, but I still love it.
