Hats, hats, hats…they’re everywhere!

I know, I know I haven’t been posting much but with a surprise trip to Milan thanks to my lovely hubby, my eldest being off school and my recent obsession with making hats along with lots of orders I haven’t had much chance for anything else!

 

I thought while I have a spare couple of minutes I would post you some pictures of the hats I have been making. First up is minions, I am sure you have noticed they are everywhere so I came up with this pattern for hats 

ImageThen I was asked for one but with a pink trim so this is the result

ImageAnd then I went with a purple one…

Image

 

And from minions to angry birds

Image

 

Then I thought it was time to do something a little more grown up so I found a pattern from ELK studios and made this houndstooth hat

Imagebut then I wanted something a bit more fun so with my love of granny squares and bright colours I threw together this rainbow granny hat. I love it but my hubby thinks I am mad, what do you think?

And so far that’s all the hats I have been making (if you take into account I have made around 15 minions so far!!) I think I am going a bit hat mad.  I have a couple of other ideas for new hats too which I will try to get made up when I get another spare hour or two!

If you would like to take a look at any of my other creations come and take a look over on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/shellescozycrochet 

 

Busy Busy Busy…

I know I planned to post something at least once a week however I have been very busy! So its time to catch up a little.  I had a surprise trip to Devon at the end of June for my birthday, hubby decided to take me and our boys for an overnight stay at Lady’s mile caravan site in Dawlish, the weather was gorgeous and we all had a fantastic time 🙂

The trip down their was rather strange with our sat nav taking us down the tightest roads it could find for us!

But once we got there it was worth it and we even saw some little baby black swans 🙂 Dawlish has the only colony of black swans in the UK

ImageSince then I have been playing catch up with lots of orders for friends, they all saw my satchel and wanted their own versions.  Each one has been different and it has definitely kept me busy

Then a little on the side leading from the roses, I moved onto butterflies which I made into bobbles for some little girls

Image

 

And I have made 2 hats which should be getting picked up on Thursday…

So as you can see, I have been busy busy busy!! I have 2 more bags to make yet too!
