After seeing this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367028.0
I decided I wanted to do the same thing. So, I made 5 hats and attached tags.
Then I put them around my town.
I got to see a woman take this last hat right after I hung it up. It made me happy on a cold day, just as I hope my hats will do for whoever decides to take one.
I finally managed to find the pattern I used for these hats. Here you go! http://warmthdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/01/pattern-for-bobbys-slouchy-beanie.html
A friend of mine recently contacted the editor of our little local freebie paper, The Ventura Breeze, and told him about this project. Next week's issue will include a small story about it, possibly with some of the pictures. The paper has also partnered with a local artist, Johanna Spinks, who is embarking on a "Faces of Ventura" project where she is painting a series of 55 portraits of various Ventura residents which will be featured in each weeks' issue and then displayed altogether eventually in a nearby gallery. Guess who is getting her portrait painted March 18th? Me! How freakin' cool is that??
