Leafy Fairy Hat

This hat kind of took me over. I wanted another hat I could put my hair through (I love hats where you can pull your hair through. In the morning I have to take my daughter to school and I love not having to mess with my hair. It gives me more time to drink coffee LOL) but I wanted it to be a fairy hat. How could I do that? Fairy hats have long tails and putting my hair through wouldn't look right. So The Lord of the Rings popped into my head. It always does. It is one of my all time favorite movies. I remembered someone saying that when they were building the Elven city that they tried to think like the elves and then they made the city around the trees instead of cutting them down. So I tried to think like a fairy and what they would have to work with and then I got the idea to make a hat out of leaves. Yah sometimes I am sure I don't think like most people. That is a pretty big stretch for inspiration haha but that is what happened. I had a little modeling issue because I can't get the wig on my mannequin head to go through the top of the hat and still look alright so I had to model. If you can't see the pics either click on them or right click on them and select view picture. I have the pattern available in My Etsy Shop for $3 if anyone is interested. What do you think?

I felt the hat needed something so I added vines and flowers on a hair tie. Plus I played around with the background a little. I just wanted to try something different :)

I also had some fun playing around with different ways to make pictures look more fairy like. I love rainbows so this is a favorite with the edges.

and here is the hat with my hair coming out the top

I also wanted to post these pics. I made my husband a Metroid for Yule. I gave it to him in a jar so it would look like I captured him a Metroid lol yah I am a geek but he loved it :)

and here is my daughter with the Brown Pony I made her. She loved it!

Fantasy Fae Slouch Hat

I found this absolutely beautiful yarn Bernat Mosaic Psychedelic. I just had to make a new hat with it. I couldn't decide if I wanted to design another slouchy hat or a fairy one. I decided to just do both. I think it turned out so pretty. I can't wait to make more stuff that yarn ;D

The pattern is available at My Etsy store for $3

What do you think?

Double Tail Santa Hat

I was watching a Christmas episode of Big Bang Theory with my husband and I saw that Penny had the CUTEST Santa hat. I just had to make one. Yah I'm a huge geek lol Christmas is just around the corner and I thought it was the perfect time to make a Santa hat ;) I know it isn't a replica of Penny's Hat. It is only inspired by her hat. I wanted to put my own twist on it. I have the pattern available in my etsy shop for $3 if anyone in interested. It was tricky to write so go easy on me. What do you think?
