Make it Take it Hats and Kylie's giveaway!

Here's a cool bag Kylie did for a giveaway - I'd swap a hat for a bag....


Here's the status on the ThistleDew you suggest it, I'll make it hat giveaway - Lisa submitted - Natural Colors (tans and greens) with ear flaps and a tie. Here's the protype sans earflaps.

Mildred would like a peachy-pink, light aqua, buttery yellow like Grandma's Hull vase.

Mamma Bee at the Bee Content Ranch suggested a Dubblamuska in rainbow colors or a vibrant colored andes mountain hat with ear flaps. I must tell you this one has been the hardest - I have two failed dubblamuska prototypes - My daughter loves them - butttt they look like an elf hat (she's eight remember) - still working on this one....the concept is easy but for some reason I can't get the increasing correct! It has become a challenge....

GNG Girl just couldn't decide - times running out girlfriend! (Now you know she'll need a little glitz on hers!)

Tattingchic offered up green with a purple pompon on top - like a thistle!

Debra suggested a lavender and violet combo - oooo I could crochet a pansie for the brim of this one....extra points for posting about the blog - thanks


Hannah suggested a rolled up brim for her hat - not specific about the colors but she's wearing hot pink in her image!


....




Susie chimed in suggesting a rolled up brim with a daisy on it - she inspired this childs hat.





Amy first offered a raffia hat - but then didn't want one until spring and switched to a cloche hat in the colors sported by Terri from Clay Hill's image
She'd like a chocolate and pink version - sounds delicious!


Marmee inspired a version of her suggestion of jewel tones in a loose fitting snood
Doesn't this hat make you want to scream "RRRRRaaass berry Beret" at the top of your lungs???!!! (Not from the '80's are you???) Gotta love Prince or what ever his name is now!




Daisy offered up her namesake on a hat - here it is!

And she was kind enough to post a link on her blog!!!!

Jannellybelly suggested chocolate and pink - got the yarn all picked out! Chocolate wool and some pink mohair for trim.....

Hi Melissa, I'm new to blogging, as you know, but I THINK I have added a link to my 3:00 post this afternoon telling about your hat giveaway. Your creative idea to get us all involved in creating hats is lots of fun.

Daisy said...

I am amazed at how many you have made in such a short time. They are all fantastic! :)

Lynda said...

Gosh, they all look lovely to me - you are very talented ! I'm hopeless with things like that, so always admire those who can create such lovely things ;)

Amy said...

WOW! You've been so busy! They all look great! Can't wait to hear how the craft fair went!
The pink hi-tops are back. I like them better too. I pull my red, white, and blue ones out for special occassions!:)
