Last night, I decided that one of Jack's old ball caps needed an Andie makeover. Though he did not see the improvement, I think she was a fan. She is such a hat girl. And a shoe girl. And a dress girl. She is such a girl!
The flowers and petals are much easier than they look. I cut strips of t-shirt and sort of folded and twisted them around like a cinnamon roll, starting in the center and sewing with my machine to keep the swirls in place as I went. The key is to not try too hard to make them perfect and just go with it!
I'd do a little tutorial, but I can't take pics while I'm sewing, so... There are TONS of fabric flower tutorials already out there anyway, so take your pick!
I hand stitched the flowers to the top part of the hat and hot glued the one on the bill. Before I knew it I was done! So quick and easy!
Andie doesn't know yet that we're dog people. She loves her "meows". I decided a stuffed one would be better than a real one, so I set out to find a cute kitty crochet pattern. I discovered the popular Amineko pattern (how have I missed this?) and decided to make it for her.
I love the way it turned out, and I think she does too. Now brother wants one - in blue and red, and minus the bow. Of course.
My husband and I run a little business on the side personalizing flower pots with house numbers and names. We'd love to paint a special pot for you or a friend. For more information, visit my website.
