learning to crochet

during the summer break between classes, I decided to teach myself how to crochet. I figure if I start now I can crochet everyone something for Christmas.

I started out practicing the different types of stitches and made some bows.

Octopus! This is the first stuffie I made

top hat for the tree

Instead of the traditional star or angel at the top of the tree, I wanted to do something different. I decided to make our tree an awesome top hat – like a sir!

I made the top hat out of burlap lined with cardboard to make it real stiff. I used a mixture of sewing and hot glue.

felt hat

Today was the last millinery class :[ but at least I finished all my hats and some! I blocked a felt hood. When I started out I wanted a top hat but the opening was too big and wouldn’t shrink in so I ended up with this.

I definitely want to buy a pilbara or fedora head block and block a felt fedora
