Sometimes I just have to laugh at the goofy things I do. I cut out the pattern pieces for one of the stocking cap blocks for From Head to Toe – pick the fabrics or one block, started to pin the main hat sections down and duh — I forgot to reverse the hats properly – didn’t even think about the fact that one of them is the reverse of the others. Easily fixed tho since I didn’t want to waste the three pieces I cut out — one block will have the hats spinning one way and the other will be reversed.
So I pulled out my “snowy” batik background and pulled out the layer cake of bright batiks Hoffman Fabrics had sent me. Here’s one hat – I cut an extra little curve or two in one section of my hat to make it a bit different and I made the pom pom just a bit smaller to take advantage of a batik with circular designs printed on it.
Here’s the other block pinned so far.
I also got my remaining February DPPAS block cut out so I can put all the fabrics I pulled out away and get rid of that mess do the rest of my cleaning and then I can gather the threads I need to applique these and get started.
