Well, finding red eyelash that was affordable, wasn't so easy. I found some quickly, but it was too orange. I searched for hats and scarves at thrift stores. None in solid red. Finally I gave in and bought a ball. Then, two weeks later, I find out there are solid coloured eyelash scarves at the big dollar store :(
It's a nice little hat, not too cutesy. It could even be worn backwards for a simple look, or for Valentine's Day. (28gr)
She really liked this hat, and it was fun to make (even though she turned down my suggestion for real mini lights on it!). Even her teen aged son liked it! Isn't her shot adorable! Very subtle Christmas, love how it matches the green ornament. There's also a blue velvet Waves layering blanket in that stack! (48gr hat). Click on the picture to see a larger version!
