11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Owl hat! on: November 21, 2012 07:23:00 AM
I had my birthday last week, and since the weather's thankfully getting cold enough for hats, I thought I'd make this as a birthday present to myself Cheesy

The pattern I used is this one. I did the teen/adult size, which ended up being a little big for me (or maybe I just like my hats a little snug, I don't know). I also made a few modifications to the pattern. I'm really pleased with how it came out! I always wanted a hat with earflaps!

A bit more info on this project can be found on my blog.

Kourtney - haha, it's okay, sounds like you have good reason to be a bit distracted Wink Yep, I just used the acrylic paint on the fabric, no stabiliser or anything. Here is a (not very good) picture of what it looks like after a few washings:

bethimusprime - I haven't tried anything other than the acrylic paint. I did start using fabric paint on the very first ones I did, but the color wouldn't show on black fabric, and it looked like it'd need two bottles of paint in the end, so I immediately moved on to acrylic, and with these I didn't even bother trying the fabric paint. If you have a light-colored fabric or dark paint, though, I'm pretty sure fabric paint would be better and more long-lasting.

I've been rewatching Batman Beyond, plus I just bought some plain undies, so I was inspired to stencil some of them, since my previous Batman panties are my absolute favourite and always put me in a better mood when I wear them.

And so, Nightwing and Batman Beyond-style undies were created \o/

I used acrylic paints, since those worked really well the last time - they get a little faded and grungy when washed a few times, and I love the effect. The Nightwing ones went without a hitch and were finished in twenty minutes flat, the other ones were a bit of a problem because it took a million layers for the color to show properly, and that creates a bit of a problem when lifting the cardboard stencil. But they turned out all right in the end, and now I have kickass panties!

These are so, so pretty! The brown and blue lace one is so different and interesting, I absolutely love it!

Thanks, guys! Yeah, it's subtle and elegant but still makes an impact, I have half a mind to do it to all my furniture Tongue
