I kept putting this off, but I finally finished the last hat.
Next week, there’s a party for the kids at work. We’re all supposed to dress up as animals. I have to be a frog, one of my collegues a fish. I made us a hat. ^^ It was really fun to do, but after a while, I got sick of seeing hats. I only finished the fish one yesterday and I’m very happy about how they turned out. I just used a basic beanie pattern using double crochets (verrrry fast and easy beanie pattern, I might add :-D) and then added the eyes and fins and stuff.
One of my friends really loved the frog hat and seeing as how her birthday was coming up, I decided to make her a bear hat. She wanted it green, so I made her a green bear hat. Instead of double crochets, I used half-double crochets and I gave the hat some cute ear flaps.
When I gave it to her, her reaction was priceless. I can’t believe how happy it made me: being appreciated, being told that you had made her the best birthday present ever.
PS: I really need a better camera and should stop using my phone to take pictures 😀
