Week 2

Week Two is inspired by one of my favorite tv shows: Doctor Who. It was also inspired by wanting to learn a new stitch, which was so shockingly easy that I can't believe I didn't know it before! I love taking time out when I can to learn new stitches. The best part? I'm featuring the same stitch in an upcoming hat, and I'm sure I'll be using it more as I really like the looks of it!

Here's my TARDIS hat, which is a blue Newsboy Cap with brim and featuring a circle of crystals on either side of it's POLICE BOX sign.

Week 1

I've come out of Maternity Leave and am hard at work right away. I'm currently holding off on custom requests while I stock up my store. Next month I'll start promoting the store again and hopefully start bringing in a good amount of customers again.

This week, I came up with the fun idea of making a hat and matching buddy. This stemmed from my daughter, who LOVES her Elmo hat. She loves even more to walk around with her Elmo hat while holding Elmo. It's adorable that she has a matching plushy to cuddle with that matches part of her outfit.

So I came up with the idea of making a few monster hats that come with matching monster plushes.

Here's my first one, a bright pink and sparkling monster featuring glittery fur and sequins!
