... I think I'm getting a little burnt out on them. Of course, it's getting warm here, so hats are just not even on my mind. I'm tired of sock monkey hats, also. I like to do new things, so it's hard for me to make the same thing over and over. Luckily, each of the mohawk hats are a little different. Once I get past making the beanie part of it, I'm fine. It's just taking me forever to make a basic beanie.
Bill's cousin is expecting her first child later this month (on Miss Iz's birthday, in fact) and I had asked her mother for a suggestion for a baby gift to make. She suggested father & son mohawk hats in their favorite sports team's colors and maybe something else for mom - but her mom didn't think she'd wear a mohawk hat. Understandable. I love them, but I'm not sure I'd actually wear one. It's taken me the better part of the past month to finish up the gifts. I finally added the finishing touches last night.
The Daddy-to-be is a huge Philly Fliers fan. I cut the logo out of felt and added it to one side of the hat. I didn't frizz out the yarn like I normally do, just separated the different strands for a kinky, curly look. For the Mommy-to-be, I went super simple - partly because I felt like I really needed to get this stuff in the mail soon. The baby might be due late April, but that doesn't really mean much. She could have it tomorrow. I just made a black and orange flower and put it on a headband. She can rock the colors in a more reserved manor. She's always struck me as a more reserved person. I could be wrong - I've only met her a couple of times. Here's a closer look...
They're all boxed up now for me to send out tomorrow. I have one more project hanging over my head that I need to accomplish before I get started on a mad rush of Easter and birthday sewing. My mom's birthday, Easter, and Iz's birthday are all in a 4 day window and I haven't done anything but wash the Easter dress fabric. I have no clue what to make my mother (probably something crocheted so I can work on it before the girls go to bed - unlike my sewing) and I'm really not sure what to make Izzy for her birthday (can't work on that during the day for obvious reasons). But first I need to get my friend's "hankie dress" made. I have it all worked out in my head now and just need to make it happen. I can do this. =)
