I hope all is good at your end. I had started writing my Blog during my maternity thinking I’ll have plenty of time to make things and scribble down but Boy was I wrong? I have only been able to write two and have joined back work already (The leave was certainly not enough). So if you see only see one post in million year …you know why.
Anyway today I wanted to share what I did with one of my daughter’s woollen hats to peck it up a bit.
We all look for bargains all the time, don’t we? Well I found a pair of hat in sale for my daughter yesterday which I thought looked too plain.
So the creative mind set to work..
For the stripy one I didn’t do much ..just got a few circles of different coloured felt together and stitched with a button in the middle.This is what it looks like now..
My daughter has even modelled it for me.. I think it looks quite all right. What do you think??
For the plain one… I thought I could do a lot more …just cut a butterfly shape in contrasting colour felt and stitched it to the hat. Then I cut small circle of felt and put it on the hat with a single cross stitch to make them look like flowers, made the stocks and leaves…and Ta dah… This is what I have..
What a difference to the first picture together..
What do you think?
