a hat a day keep bad hair days away

for some reason i am really into making hats all of the sudden. i cant stop thinking of hats i want to make.

 

i made this hat yesterday.

its just knit sweatshirt material and felt. a little cheesy, but still cool enough for me šŸ™‚

 

in the spirit of going through things and getting stuff cleaned up, i decided to work on a really old project today. a while back, (about a year ago) my friend mentioned that she was going to do her sons room in a nautical theme. i had all these scraps left over from a previous project that were just the right colors. thus, and idea was born that i would make the quilt for her new room.

i was so excited about it that i told her it would be done by his birthday. well, his birthday is in febuary and that was last year. so, i am trying to get it done by this years birthday. i already had all the squares cut out, i just had to design the flag parts and sew them all together. originally i was going to make a twin size quilt but i think i am now opting for a throw size blanket. here is how far i got in a bout an hour and a half.

i made it all mismatchy on purpose, i think it ads to the piratey feel i am going for…. what five year old doesnt like pirates?? i was about to put it together with the batting and backing when i realized that the piece of batting i have was three inches too small…..grrrrr …… so now i have time to rethink the size…. i could still add more to it (i have enough scraps) and design the quilting. i plan on doing a combination of hand a machine quilting.
