I love this color blue and it always looks good on my mom, so when this sad, abandoned blue turtleneck sweater showed up looking for a new purpose in life, I decided to give it one--in modified form--as a gift for my mom. My obsession with the 1920s was definitely present in the process, but since my mom does not share my obsession, I tried to make the flapper influence subtle.
Sorry for the crappy photobooth photos. I can't get my digital camera to work anymore. Sad


and a horrible pic of me, but it shows the applique on the side better:


This was my first time making a hat or doing applique, so any comments, critiques, and encouragements are welcomed! Smiley

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

What an adorable cap! I really like it, esp. the applique.
