Custom Striped Elephant Hat for Baby :: Or, The Blog Post which Took Months to Publish

I know some of you blogging whiz kids craft your posts weeks in advance and neatly schedule them so *poof!* a shiny new post magically appears every morning.

And then some of you scribble your post ideas on a piece of paper, write a grocery list on the other side of the paper and then accidentally toss the whole thing after shopping. (Right? Please tell me I’m not the only one?) Well, the idea for this particular post was lost on the back of that grocery list. It’s truly, truly, embarrassing.

So long ago that he’s probably outgrown it, I made a custom elephant hat for a sweet friend’s son. My design drew heavily from this painting which is on his bedroom wall.

The little man’s momma sent me the sweetest handwritten thank you card, and some adorable (ahem, handsome) photos of her son modeling the hat.

Bright striped beanies…and a wee willie winkie cap!

This latest round of hats is all about bright colors, perfect for brightening up the October gloom.

And see those gray and pink stripes? I’m in the middle of experimenting with something I haven’t put in the shop before…a gnome-style wee willie winkie cap! It will, of course, have an owl. :-)

Baby owl hats now available on Green by USA as well as Etsy!

You might have seen me post on Facebook or Twitter recently about Green by USA, a new website which offers green, American-made products from a variety of vendors. Well, when Tina — an old family friend, miltary wife, and babywearing, cloth-diapering mama of 3 — asked me if I wanted to sell a line of natural-fiber hats on the site, of course I said yes! (This new line is in addition to my Etsy shop).

So check out Green by USA, and be sure to leave them some love on Facebook.
