anyway, Zoey's hat was done and had been sitting for a couple months - just waiting to be, literally, finished off. so I finally stitched up the top and it became a hat. it's a bit big, but it doesn't really matter cause the little stinker won't leave it on anyways!
I've been giving some little "accessory" pieces a whirl too, I'm trying to get good at tiny-small flowers so I can make little clips with them! it's amazing how much you can learn from youtube videos - just gotta put that out there! so, I added a flower and a leaf to Zoey's hat!
then I decided to try a headband. I was surprised at how quickly that went. I decided it would be a little after school surprise for Annicka. I added a little flower (and even made a little "ball" for the center) and she loved it!
she wore it two or three times that week! I did notice it seemed to stretch a little, well - actually she told me that. and the shape seemed to wriggle too - for lack of a better way to describe it - but I think part of that is how she puts it on? anyway, I'll have to research that a bit.
whilst completely absorbed in little fun things, I gave a butterfly a try! it's cute!
here's the stinker modeling the now completely finished hat! and then she pulled it off - repetitively, while I tried to get a "good" photo!
