Hats Hats And More Hats

Ok been back from my weekend getaway. Did a little shopping while in Green Bay, WI found some lovely fabrics that I now have to figure out what to do with all this fabric. I also got some patterns of all kinds. My plan this spring is to start sewing alot more and hopefully sell a few things from time to time. Thinking about jackets ranging from size 12 and up. First have to get more a couple of dressforms sometime this month.

But, here is a few fabrics and patterns my sweetheart got for me after batting my eyes and saying you know you want to get it for me lol.

Ok also I made me a few hats for myself a Newsboy (Women) hat and a cap. I got a couple of responds about my hats people wondering where I got them from but, after saying I made them myself there goes a ramp-page I have been sewing hats since Sunday night. Sold about 6 so far have a couple left that I thought I would put on my Etsy shop and see how it goes on there, since I haven't been sewing on Etsy I mainly been doing a lot of person to person selling but, thought well why not. So taking a leap.


The description to ever hat is in my Etsy Shop if you like more details about them all. I also want to try to do custom made orders by have different fabrics and the customer picks the fabric they want from the fabric swags I email if someone want a custom order done. I also want to add some more hats with matching purses to my shop soon. :)



Here is a few of the hats I whipped up. I have been sewing my butt off going to take a 2 day brake of sewing and start reading since I got more books that I added to my collection.

I did 2 Newsboy (Women) hats and 4 caps with buttons on the side for a little design. They all ranges in size small to medium. From 22 inches to 23 1/2 inches for sizes.

Patterns I followed are from McCall 5541 with a little alternation I did on the caps and other pattern is from Simplicity 2808 with also more alternations.


Here go 2 hats I made for myself. 1 is the Newsboy hat and the other is the cap. The newsboy hat is a large due that I have lots of braids, and the cap is a medium I haven't wore it yet will wear it after I take my braids out.

Well ok I think that is all for now just a quick update on my latest projects. No crocheting lately but, have to get back to that this week since I am still working on that afghan for myself and I started on a wrap/shawl something of my own pattern I am whipping up.


So everyone have a great week, take care of yourself. :)
