Rep Weave form

So I am in the design process of creating a little sculptural thing from rep weave. Elements include hinges and flaps. I am looking at incorporating some bamboo in the structural part as well. 

I am weaving up some rep weave place mats and will have a bit left over that I can use as a sample piece.

I will post some sketches after I work through some more ideas. And some photos. But it is interesting that the shape is reminding me of a fascinator hat, at least at the moment.
