See what I've been up to? I found this fun barrette idea at Angry Chicken and just had to try it out. Mine don't look nearly as nice as hers, mostly because I hate my sewing machine with a passion and try to do everything without one. So, these are hand sewn and look hand sewn. And I'm pretty much ok with that. I love this idea though. I used great big barrettes that I picked up cheap at Target and the felt I found at Michaels. It took me about 15 minutes to cut and sew one. I imagine if I did it assembly line style it would go faster, but I was just checking this out.
I want to thank everyone who gave me hat ideas. I haven't decided on any hats yet, but I've checked them all out and printed out a few patterns. I really appreciate everyone who leaves me comments. I love comments - even from my little sister when she's a bit snarky. :) Love you Sis'!
The winner is.... (drumroll).... Carly. I put one name in the hat for each idea you gave me and had Addie pick out a winner. She was very excited to do the picking. Carly, email me at knittingupnorth at gmail dot com with your address. I have a very cool sock kit that I will send out to you. :)
