Two Warm Woollen Hats Completed

Do you remember way back when I was making preparations for a warm woollen hat or two? Actually in finding this link I've discovered it was only just over a month ago, so I'm not doing too badly. They are now complete! My motivation has been the fact that this month is the last of winter. August is often our coldest month so I thought my lassies would enjoy being able to keep their heads warm. It appears to be working as once the hat is on, it doesn't seem to come off toooo easily. It really does keep little heads very cosy.

Ess particularly enjoys keeping her head warm. Although she does not like having her photo taken, as usual. Even when I try to snap a shot or two while she's playing the penny whistle.

The embroidery you saw me working on recently is now complete and very prettily adorning this pair of sweet bonnets.

Little Eee very much enjoyed playing model for me while I snapped away happily and we now have some delightful shots of a little sweetie wearing her new bonnet.

My result is quite different from the White Melton Hat in Carefree Clothes for Girls: 20 Patterns for Outdoor Frocks, Playdate Dresses, and More. It is much more romantic and feminine yet still worn by my girls in a very carefree manner.

Look at those curls! Very sweet your little (tall) girls are and the hats turned out so sweet!

Wow! They are so sweet! (The hats and the models, I mean!)

Thankyou ladies! I definitely agree sweet is the right word for these bonnets! And of course my girls can be sweet times! Their hair is like chalk and cheese - Ess' is so very straight and Eee's just keeps on curling. I am hoping it is not her baby hair she'll grow out of. Her hair is amazing really like a teenager's or a girl in her twenties - not a 2 nearly 3 year old.

That first photo is so artistic! Those bonnets and young "belles" are beautiful! :-)

Well it's been a while since I've been able to check out your posts. I love the hats and your girls are adorable. I might have missed a post, do you know what you are having this time?

The butterfly life cycle 'pasta fun' looks great. Makes me want to get my nieces and paint a little butterfly village!
