I’ve sewn a few quickies since my last slightly-ambitious project. Including: two hats!
The green was entirely designed by myself; the blue, only slightly helped by a six-gore hat pattern. YES on the blue bunny I totally made those circular hand-stitched tucks, and the bunny ears, and HELLS YES do both kids love the results! (More construction detail if you’re clicking away and looking for it.)
My kids are all busy growing up and it kills me.
(Shoutout to Ralph for the above-pictured Hoquiam tourist brochure, which he designed. It’s making its rounds out in the world today… here Phoenix is looking it over approvingly (and adorably, if I do say so!) at the new Tully’s)
I loooooove those hats. Did the circular tuck technique come from the Manipulating Fabric book, by any chance, or did you make it up? It looks amazing. The hats are so distractingly good that I only had a sliver of a chance to envy your greenery, which I otherwise have done passionately.
Yes, I am beginning to dabble in that book, and that is one of the first techniques to try (thank you again Karen!). Pretty good for my first attempt!
Ooh, wow. Love those. Love those a lot. I am a very mediocre seamstress but I know enough to appreciate the craft. Or at least I usually do, because the detailing on those hats is, pardon the pun, over my head. Beautiful Kelly!
(Also, our fridge is beautifully adorned tonight thanks to the Hoga-clan. Wish we could be there.)
what beauties! kids and hats and the combination…
hey, is the title in Dutch or is mozilla translating your title, without me knowing…
Thank you. And yes, we wish you could be there too!
Thank you. And yes, the title is in Dutch, and you were my inspiration. 🙂
Super beautiful! I really love the circles on the blue one – and the ears of course. The texture of both of them makes my mouth water. I don’t know why, it’s not like I could eat them…but I suppose I’m an animal and salivation is the best compliment I can give for tastily sewn garments.
Thanks for the compliments! Your knitting skillz make MY mouth water… and chewing on wool doesn’t work that well, I agree.
