I used embroidery floss for the hair by unraveling purple, green and orange floss then sewing it down at the hat brim.
Keep it a secret.....this is part of the Christmas present I am making for my sister. I sure hope she likes it.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday I didn't have to work (and since the TV was being held hostage by sports-sports-sports) I got a lot done in my sewing room. I tried my hand at machine quilting....not so successfully; worked on Seasonal Skinnies by Crazy Old Lady patterns from the Strip Club; and even (are you sitting down?) cleaned the sewing room! I know....there are counter tops in there...who would have guessed? I think I am almost done with Christmas gift sewing now. I really need to take my machine in for a checkup...its sounding kind of clunky.
Hope you are all happily getting ready for Christmas. Lynda
