that’s what i had yesterday and it ties in nicely with todays entry ;)
spring flower picking bonnet
misti alpaca chunky (soooo soft)
thrifted buttons and tapestry wool
ties made from gwen’s handspun scraps and my hand dyed tweed
my goal with this one was to show off the pretty old buttons. it’s *very* girly.
each time i come up with a new hat pattern, i’ve noticed that i have to re-figure out how to embellish it. for instance, with flat hats, i have the tendency to treat them as a landscape. with round hats, they can be partial landscapes. with these bonnets? i’m not so sure yet.
ben and i thought this one was perfect without any embroidery.
purple pixie hood
recycled vest wool (very ugly and late 1980’s, but i LOVE this wool)
ties are hand dyed recycled sweater wool
and lastly, i think this one would be great for someone with lots of hair to come out the back. it has different shaping than the others.
a hood for a winter walk
debbie bliss donegal tweed chunky
embroidered with inherited wool (blend? it’s shiny. i used it because i loved the contrast. all natural for sure though…)
adult small (although modeled on my medium sized head)
the first two are from my pattern here.
