New Hats! And, future tutorial!

I've got 2 new hats to show off!

Just finished a topless for my Great Aunt Claudine made with yellow t-shirt scrap and multi-colored yarn.

The other is a sun hat made with blue and white fleece strips that was made by request for a fellow crafter on She's giving it as a gift to someone who collects hats. I tried some new techniques on this one. I figured out a way to weave muli-colored patterns (hard to see the music notes here) and a new way to attach the pieces together. Mom is modeling it til I can get some pics from the new owner.

I'm currently working on a tutorial on creating tabistry and how to make a pop top hat. I may also work on a "how to" video as well. So, in the near future, anyone interested will be able to get a copy to create their own.

Thank you to everyone who have helped make my tutorials better. I now have two up finished and now on (when in stock) here:

I opted not to use at this time. I may in the future, but for now I will just stick with Etsy.
