Vader and the Crocodile

Vader is almost complete. I thought he was in this pic, but then I noticed he was missing the ridge at the top of his helmet. I know, picky, picky. I based this hat on the pattern by Snappy Tots. While this pattern was easy to follow, I could not get my tension to match. I ended up doing my own thing for a majority of this hat, but I just wanted to mention this pattern because that’s where I got my inspiration from.

I’ll have this for sale at Finnegan Lake Gallery located in Coe Hill, Ontario. I also have some crocodile stitch slippers for sale there and will be taking more over this weekend. I’m hoping to get a couple of pairs done using these yarns:

Headbands Abound

My niece asked me for some headbands for her birthday. Done! Not only that, but my cousin had requested some blingy ones for her daughter. So it was headbands all around at the family gathering today!

Of course Charchar has to get his mug in there LOL These three headbands I made without a pattern. I’m considering publishing them. Many of the patterns I looked at had buttons or they were made to fit. These ones are made out of cotton for the summer and I find that cotton tends to stretch after time. Oh, and then there’s the part where I just didn’t want to sew a button on them 😉

I have a busy few weeks ahead. I’m working on some crocodile stitch slippers tomorrow (possibly tonight). I have to make another Droid hat too. I love being busy doing the things I love!
