Love the hats! That's a sweet bunny, and the storage bags are a great idea!
I have craftitis, too! But I have to have several things going on a once. That way, if I'm impatiently waiting for glue or paint to dry, I can tackle something else instead of picking it up too soon.  Cheesy Or, if I get stuck on a project, I can shove it aside and dive into another, instead of getting frustrated. Works for me!

Kookaloo!! Those hats are SOOOOO awesome!

I had  a difficult time with hat=making. My swap partner's head is smaller than mine, and everyone I asked measured out at the same size as mine. Finally found somebody with the same-size head, but the mock-up was too small (despite it *measured* absolutely perfect). So I finished the real hat --everybody says it is larger, but I am back to not having a 22" head to measure it on. Next time I'll go buy a pattern rather than design it myself.

Thanks for the feedback on the hats  Smiley
 Eclectic Dreamer  -  Instead of buying a pattern what about buying a cheap hat from the dollar store or thrift store in the right size and chop that up to make a pattern? That tends to be the way I go with most of my stuff.

I've had a treat this week, 4 metres of lovely cotton batik in turquoise with pink butterflies on it  Grin I better add a skirt to my list  Wink

I made this car seat quilt (it has ties so the baby can't kick the blanket off) for my baby who is due on April 18th. It's the Sophie Car Seat Quilt pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. My pregnancy brain made it a little more difficult than it had to be, but the end result is great, so all's well that ends well I guess.

Crafting FAIL!!  I tried making shower steamers today and they do not want to harden, and they keep expanding.  So now they look like HUGE cookies all baked together into one piece.  At least they smell good!  lol Roll Eyes

Erm... what's a shower steamer?

Love the quilt Mel

All the hats are fantastic.

Love the idea of putting the toddler shirt on a grown up... particularly given the story.

Once again, more good stuff than I can keep up with.

I made my coworker a bag for his girl friend. He got into a scuffle and ruined his shirt. I've never met her before and I have no idea her style, so I went for a messenger bag. The fabric was awful to work with, but it's done!
