Which ones are sold out at SockDreams? Their site says both the opaque stocking kind and the more sock-like kind are still available. Hunt around on their site; they've tons of variety of striped socks.

ohhh! thanks Cheesy duh me. i was only paying attention to the m strips ones.  since the opaque stockings listed on the site are exactly the same ones as i was hoping to get my hands on from another site, i think i'll just order from sockdreams, b/c it's cheaper Smiley thanks again! *does happy dance*

Ha, I'm using that same pattern, mai! I also wrote to Dawn and sent her a picture of the hat I was going for, and she assured me I was on the right track.

I modified her pattern in the following ways:

- added a red band about 1.25" wide inbetween the brim and poofy part
- I cut the brim as in Dawn's tutorial, then cut it again so it wasn't a complete circle, but more like the doll (I used this image as my basis). I think this part is easier to show than try to talk you through:



- Finally, Dawn said I'd need to make the poofy part larger to get the effect I wanted. Her large circle is approximately 16", and I made mine about 18" and it's still not large enough. So, go big to get a good amount of poof. If you think it would help, I'd gladly post a pic of my final hat.

Sorry it took me so long to get back, mai. Having any luck?

Here's two imges of my hat; the first one shows off the poof and the second is a better shot of how I modified the brim. If I had time or inclination to redo it, I'd make the trim smaller, by about half and add more fabric for the poof.

I've had all the sewing done for days, if not more than a week, but just finished the embellishments on my apron and had to post them somewhere; I'm so proud at how they really make the apron sooo much cooler:

Lower part of apron:

This was really my first time working with felt, and I had a lot of fun once I got over some initial frustrations (like not being able to stitch through the fabric glue, whoops!).

My party's Saturday night, so I'll post my whole ensemble in the Halloween 2005 thread early next week. Cheesy
