Brett's Viking Hat

   I have recently been challenged with two projects. One is finally done and the other is very close (you will see in the next post). Brett sent me a picture and asked if I could make him a Viking hat with a beard. I almost bought a pattern for the hat, but decided to give it a try before doing that. The first try was a fail, but the second came out pretty good. I found a free pattern for the beard on Ravelry at this link. I also found a free pattern for the horns at this link. I stuffed the horns so they would keep their shape. I really like how it came out.

Perfect Fit

  Remember the Cloche that I made to felt? It shrunk to the perfect size for my little neighbor. I didn't get a chance to adorn it with anything, but it still looks cute on her.. or maybe she makes the hat look cute. Either way, I think it's cute. She's adorable!

Show & Tell

  Liz sent me some pictures from her visit at the Inauguration in DC this year. She made a red white and blue cloche from my Classic Cloche pattern and adorned it with some Obama buttons. Very creative! She even made a scarf to match. Thank you for the pictures, Liz. I'm glad you and your husband had a great time and a safe trip. The hat looks great on you!

  I love seeing finished products from my patterns. If you want to be featured on my blog with your finished items, just shoot me an email. If you don't want to be featured but are still willing to share your pics, that's great too! Just let me know in the email if you want me to post your pics or not.
