Flashback Friday: Panda Hat Fiesta!

on July 12, 2013

This is a blast-to-past project that I had made for my little cousins a couple months ago. It was still cold out here and nothing beats a stylish hat, especially a panda hat!  These little hats were absolutely adorable! I did have to redo one of the hats as I didn’t get their little head sizes right but other than that they were pretty straight forward! The look me about 3-4 hours to make – depending on how many interruptions I got and if I could focus on one sitting 😉 I did have a little trouble sewing on the panda ears. I had them pinned but I still think they were a little off centered. As always, sewing is not a strong point for me 😛

These little hats were addicting to make! I wanted to make more after I finished them and to do different animal faces 😛 With all different colors to chose from, you can make classic hats or use fun, bright colors – which is a spray of creativity that you can play with. I can see why so many crocheters out there love making hats 😉 I want to hear about your crochet hat experiences! Do you enjoying making them? What kind of creative spins have you done to a normal hat? Until next time, happy crocheting everyone!

    My first special hat was Boots, and Dora came quickly after. If you want to see them, they’re on my Koffee Kitty page. I’ve made a kitty and a bear hat and quite a few more, but they’re not released yet. 😉 I’m loving it so much! I want to make something more than hats though, so after I finish the two I’m working on, I’ll get to that.
