I’ve expanded a bit beyond owl hats this time around (although there are still plenty of those). Now introducing dolls, quirky creatures, and hats with Japanese Kokeshi-inspired faces!
Which one is your favorite?
See all the new Winter 2012 items.
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.
I’m fairly confident the incredible squeezable-ness of his cheeks makes up for how long it took me to post this. ;-)
just yesterday i wrote that i haven’t been able to see many of the little people wearing that hats i’ve crocheted. and then my sweet friend christi (alas, she has no blog!) sent me this precious photo of her little taylor wearing the striped flower hat i made for her.
