Yeah, yeah. I know. I always say that making hats are so boring that the clocks stops. And I still think that. But, no rule without an exception, ey? Both kids have magically lost their hats in school. Go figure! So, both of them needed a warm hat for the winter. And preferable unique enough to make all teachers and students on the school recognize their hats, so that they would be returned if they misplaced them again.
Anyway. It usually takes me less time to sew to hats, than to bring two kids into the store, make them choose a hat (that preferrably isn't to expensive, that matches their coats and they still approve of) and go back again. Okay, these might have taken a little longer time than that to make, but hey, I am really proud of them and they were almost not boring at all to make!
A hat with a rat it is!
I made the entire hat in velour, and the mouse face is also made in velour and the other details in jersey. I wish I had a lighter gray velour for the mouse, but hey, sometimes you need to use the stuff you've got in stock! Apart from that I think it turned out pretty cute! Really comfy too, and if she's not wearing it, I will!
I do hope that the kids love their new hats!!
