Tag Tuesday Steampunk

Hello Everyone

Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts. We have just been for an early morning walk and got very wet on the way back as the sunshine turned to a heavy April shower. I decided to make a tag when we got back home as Tag Tuesday has the theme Steampunk/Mecanical and it is one of my favourite themes. Great samples made by Sandie as inspiration for her chosen themes.

This is my sort of dream hat as I would love to be able to go to Whitby and wear one like it. So many people are dressed up in this sort of thing when we visit there but Vic doesn't seem too keen on me wearing one. Maybe I will just fasten this tag onto my front--:)

I cut out a hat shape in black and just added old pieces of watches, some lace, a flower and a magpie feather I found yesterday on our garden. The skull and cross bones ribbon just finished the whole thing off for me.

I have an idea for another tag for the theme but that will take longer I reckon.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. way to go Chrissie, what a tag and a half, this is amazing.xx♥

  7. I love the idea of a hat shaped tag!! This one is really fantastic, with such great items added to it!!

  8. Wow what an amazing tag and I would love to see you in a hat like that! Such a great idea for the theme!!

    As you may remember I have been away for about a month with a blog break, so apologies for lack of visiting, but back home now and looking forward to coming by more regularly again :o)

  9. What a great and creative idea for this steampunk theme, Chrissie - yes, I think a hat like this would definitely catch on as a fashion statement.

  10. An absolutely fabulous tag Chrissie.

  11. It's a fabulous tag, and, yes you definitely should wear the tag if you can't convince Vic to dress up! Hugs, Chrisx

  12. WOW Chrissie that's a fabulous tag, the hat looks brilliant with all the little details. You certainly wouldn't look out of place if you did wear a hat like that in Whitby, but if Vic's not keen, definitely wear the tag pinned to your outfit.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  13. I love this Chrissie, and you should definitly make a full sized one for Whitby (and make Vic wear this one pinned to him!) Have a lovely weekend, Sue xx

  14. Fabulous tag Chrissie, love the hat idea. It would be great fun to wear one like this in Whitby, Vic could pretend he didn't know you.

  15. oh wait, you MUST make and wear a hat just like this one on your head it is brilliant! so much fun as well. well done! xo

  16. Oh Chrissie this is so brilliant..yes wear it as a broache but a real Steampunk hat would even cooler :) I know theres a big Steampunk movement in Lincoln so is there one in Whitby too?
    Hope your week is going well.
    Gill xx

  17. Oh, that's such a clever tag design with the brim of the hat at the foot. I think you should definitely make this into a corsage brooch, if Vic won't let you wear an actual hat like this!
