happy Friday!

Just wanted to share this photo...it's the first I've been able to take in the daylight of this project and shows all the happy colors a little better. :) I'm hoping the wrinkles and puckers will come out when I frame it. 
 I think this H is my finest work yet. :)
I went to Joannes and bought gobs of fleece and satin to work on some Halloween costume orders.  I was most excited about making this hat...I basically looked at the standard fleece hat for kids (that you can find in a million places) figured out how to make my own version...looked at a photo of Yoda to get the ears right and paid my little model an m&m to wear it for a photo. 
There are a million and one patterns and tutorials out there to make Yoda hats but I didn't want to step on any toes so I was careful to make up my own patterns. 
You want to know the really funny part?  I have never ever seen the movies.  I did go to half of one in high school...but the girlfriend of one of the people we were with had to leave early for curfew so we all left. 
I don't know if it's the cuteness of the model or what...but I think I did a pretty good job. :) If you need a hat to go with your costume this year...email me...I could easily turn this into any number of animals.

And...just a little side note....the TLC website Parentables featured one of my tutorials...go on over HERE to check it out!

And I just wanted to say...if you stop by to read my little blog...if you leave a comment or share something here with a friend...or email me little things you think I would like...or send random things to me in the mail...I am thankful for you.  This blog and the people who participate in it are a huge part of my happy life and I am so blessed by it because of all of you!  So thank you!

Hi there- long time lurker, first time commenter! I love your ABC project! And the hat is adorable. I love how you paid your model "an m and m"- really just one? I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by http://withoutcomplexities.blogspot.com

I hope you are having a great week!

Talent runs through you!!!

How much would you be charging for a hat?? I'm not sure what I'd like but something girly for mckinley and cute for jett would be fab!! I'll be thinking.

What a precious gift you're making for your niece. It'll surely be an heirloom!

The sampler is really quite lovely, your nice is going to love it.

Yoda-Hoho is too cute for words!

Don't feel bad about not having seen Star Wars, the only one I remember having seen is the 4th one released (first in the chronology) though my parents insist they took me to see all of the original ones in the theater. My dad actually took me to see the first one when I was about a year old because he wanted to go see it and my mom already had plans for the day so she said he had to take me along if he went ;)

I am not a fan of Star Wars, but immediately knew it was a Yoda hat when I saw your pic on Instagram and I was SO impressed, it's awesome. (That was also a ridiculously long, run on sentence.)PS I am MUCHO jealous of your embroidery stitching skills...super fab, love it! XO
