I have been seeing kids wearing earflap animal hats all over the place. They seem to be quite popular.
So, our kids’ school auction is coming up and I thought I’d try my hand at making some.
Here are the ones I made for the auction:
My favorites are the Angry Birds Hat and the Owl Hats. I’ve been using the following websites for patterns, adjusting the patterns only a bit as necessary:
(Thanks to both of these bloggers for sharing patterns!!)
I’m still working on getting sizes right – going back and forth between patterns, stitches, and changing hook sizes – I still haven’t been able to make a hat that fits a school-aged child. ha ha – and my hello kitty’s whiskers look more like eyelashes – guess I need more practice! The owls and angry birds are preschool sized and the penguin and hello kitty are teen/adult sized! It should be interesting to see if they sell at the auction and for how much!
After I see how well they sell on Saturday at the auction, I’m thinking about trying to make and sell them on my own. What do you think?
