New headwear....

Whilst I am gearing up to blog about SIT 2011 (which only happened 3 months ago) I though it best to just blog simply to get back into it... so here is some new headwear I have been making for my girls.

The owl hat is getting lots of lovely comments when we are out.

This almost 5 year old just loves the hearts!

This is one I made a long time ago and is one of my favourites. 
It is getting lots of use in chilly Melbourne!

Details of the hats and headbands Raveled here.

The Hottie Challenge....heats up!

When I read that my friend Cass and her girls were joining in the group entry of the Hottie Challenge organised by the very talented CurlyPops I thought I should join in too!

I dropped mine off in person at Open Drawer on Friday morning.... nothing like a last minute creative flurry the night before the due date! Open Drawer is a beautiful place for all things hand made with a lovely gallery space upstairs which was showing amazing felt pieces by local Melbourne artists.

Note to self: Need to take the camera out with me more often to capture all the new and exciting activities in Melbourne!

The Grand Opening of the Exhibition is on Friday July 1st from 6-8PM and runs until 24th July.

Here is a picture of my entry. I have seen some of the entries and know that mine has no chance of being a winner... but a lovely contribution to a very worthy cause as all proceeds from the sale of the Hotties are donated to the Margaret Pratt Foundation.
