Foiled Again...

Oh, the frustration of a failed project! I'm working on craft time fumes here, Mr. Jack and Jill Hat! You are a lovely pattern, and I had such success with your "Jack". But your "Jill" is a different story.

I measured Rebecca's head.

I cut my pattern.

I made a hat.

It was too small.

I took Suzanne's sage advice and called on the girls at the shop for help.

I followed the advice and made another hat.

Grrr. Too small again. I realized I had measured wrong...again...( I am even sleeping well, for heaven's sake!)...and so I bestowed the hat on dear friends for their almost-here-baby-girl. Their gratefulness made all of my frustration leave instantly. Now I just feel warm and fuzzy. I can't wait to meet you, little Paige!

Here is the top of Rebecca's head modeling the hat for you :)

How funny, I made the Jack Hat and it was HUGE on my boys' heads! It is super cute though!!!

Jennifer said...

Yup, you are not allowed to cover up those cute faces. Maybe we will try again at your next sewing night?

Suzanne said...

Third time's the charm?? Sorry it didn't work for you, but don't give up. Maybe make one for you with hopes it will fit Rebecca? Good luck. Glad you were able to gift it to someone who loved it.

Jennifer said...

Ha ha! That is a great idea, Suzanne! Thanks.

Those hats are too cute! I think we need matching cousin hats:)

Can you teach us how to make the fabric flowers?? :) Love, Lisa (Stacie's sister)

I found a tutoral on line, yippee! Love your cute stuff!

Jennifer said...

Lisa! Hi! Darn it! I haven't checked my blog for awhile...although you would figure it out sooner or later, I'm sure. Great to hear from you.

Sister, you know it is simply a matter of time!

Love you all.
