Pinnie


This time I used the wall as my model and it gave me no grief whatsoever. When the life model woke from her nap I insisted she try it on. In one shot you'll see her modelling another of her favourite summer hats trying to escape me and in the next she's a sultana monster on the couch. I like the orange and denim together - do you think this style is too young for a mama?


PS As I've mentioned, Leila is MAD for a hat with fluff that she can pick at (read wool or piled cotton). Any ideas on a pattern for a kind of lightweight hat she could wear in the summer - perhaps crocheted, gosh, I'd have to learn a new skill....

Gorgeous orange fabric and agree it looks great with the denim! Would it work with a belt for a mama? Can't quite picture it but maybe?

Oh I so need a girl. Do you think my boys would mind wearing one? I just so need to make these sort of things....

Another gorgeous pinnie.

In regards to the hat pattern, the best I've got is a link to a pretty little crocheted hat that could pass for summer if made in lighter wool maybe?

Or what about a knitted headband? Aren't kids funny creatures!

I definitely think this style would be mama appropriate, too. Love it.

the orange looks great with the denim! I think that style would suit a mama as well, perhaps with a couple of darts.

This style would be just right for mama, too. You will not know it if you don't try it, right? :)
