I got back, and decided to do some sewing...First up, new hats for my daughter. She doesn't need any more hats, far from it, but she's getting a new winter coat. A wiser woman might have waited until the coat actually arrived to purchase fabric, but that is not me.
I had originally planned that the whole hat would be in the owl fabric, but I actually really like the two-tone look. She seemed to love it, and I think it's just adorable. Then I put this together:
I love this fabric, and I'm hoping the green around the flowers will pick up the green from the coat. Which is really green. I had thought about doing a different design but she wanted the floomfy hat (as we call it).
A woman at church had admired my daughter's hat, so I decided to make her little girl one as well. Now, these aren't typical little girl colors, but I think it's really cute! So cute that I'm struggling with my generous impulse, as I want to keep it!
Then, because I love the fabrics so much...
This process also highlights for me my love of fraternal socks.
