These files are from the sil online store, Snapdragon Snippets, a mourner's hat and a cozy kitty luminaire, Ashbee Designs.
Snapdragon Snippets has lots of cute designs and they really are sturdy. I would do more of theirs but I have trouble with the way the instructions are. I actually thought they were written by a man till I saw pics that showed hands.
Anyway I kept looking at this file, then the instructions. After about a week I couldn't stand it. I had to "try" making it. This time I pretty much figured it out.
This hat reminds me of New Orleans and parades. My dad's family all lived in Louisiana and I was born there. This hat just made me remember family vacations, eating boiled crabs in the lake restaurants, dancing to the jukebox, fun with cousins...just happy times. We were all twelve and under. Great memories, 1955 - 1965.
Take a look:
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
