A little while ago, I was asked by a photographer to make a fisherman outfit. She showed pictures; wanted a cream bucket hat and blue pants, and some wee fish. I searched my stash, I wanted to use cotton for authenticity. I didn't have anything that worked, but what I did have in both colours, was some Red Heart "Washable Wool". So yes, I made a newborn "Tilley" hat in wool. LOL. This wool has a nice construction though, which gives it an sort of cotton look, but is very soft and durable.
I can't wait to see this set on a real baby. I was rushing to get these pictures, and it was cold out! We went from a dusting of snow to a huge storm that evening and the next day, over 12"/30cm of snow. It was coming down at about an inch an hour! Definitely not fishing weather!
I didn't make the shoes, but what an awesome match! Jennifer is so talented!
