Hello Kitty Hat, Finally something New!

Finally I have finished something New to add to This-n-That Boutique. I am trying to stick to my resolution or goal of getting 30 samples done so that I can get pictures taken and get my website up and going. The pattern I purchased was with earflaps so I will make one of those next. I just thought that it would be cute to make one without to. I think I will do ones in different colors. I am just such a perfectionist that after I made this one I already know what I will be doing differently. Nothing to the look of it really just the putting the pieces on and how it is all put together and the yarn on the bow. I want a thicker yarn to make it a little more puffier if that makes any sense. This was a fast pattern and the hat worked up well. I tend to crochet a little tight so I at first did the bigger size and that was even to big for my 9 year old step daughter so I had to start all over to get a good size for my model. She is the one that likes to wear all my hats. She is 4 and she has room in this one. I got this adorable pattern from Sabrie Creations on Etsy. I love when I find a pattern that works up easy and the sizing is done well. I will post pictures of the ear flap version as soon as I work one up. I wont give a time frame on that because well I am am VERY proud I got this sample worked up so fast. Hopefully in the next 2 days of working a little less I will get a few more hats done. Custom orders always welcome at This-n-That Boutique. Happy Sunday!
