The Mad Hatter!

Lately, I have been a mad woman hat maker! I have been working everyday on my hats. Mostly, completing orders. I have been proud of myself lately, I have set a goal for myself that I would make a hat a day or some other fiber creation. So far I have met that goal, sometimes I can whip out two. I wish I could make more, but I still have not quite figured out how to carve out my work hours along with all my other obligations here at Mom, Inc. ;)

Here are a few photos of a completed Cupcake:

Cocoa Bunny

The little purse has the baby's birth info. It made it a little more personal and special. I used a mix of washable wool and acrylic.

The Hiatt Family wearing my crochet hats!

Knit fingerless gloves and matching hat, that I made last year for my BFF Lucy. If you ever want a pair of fingerless gloves let me know. I charge anywhere from $15-$20 a pair.

I made this hat about a few weeks ago for a girlfriend. It was a gift for someone else. The flower is on the back of the hat. This yarn is to die for...I have used it in the past (I do not have the name for it) it is an elastic cotton. These are not colors I would usually choose, however, the varigated pattern turned pretty cute. Below are a few more shots:

Bad lighting. This is the inside of the hat. I embroidered the baby's initials on a piece of fabric and sewed it on the inside back of the hat.
