First of all, a couple of months ago, against all my objections I opened a Facebook account to be able to connect with others to save our nursery. And as too many people have been annoying me to open a page for Facebook Atelier Oursonne, I have finally done that and created a few albums with pictures of previous projects. So like it or not but if you are on facebook, please share it with your friends 🙂
But back to the actual purpose of this post: Scrap Sunday
When I bought my e-book for the children jacket from klimperklein, I just couldn’t resist a few of the other e-books. So I also bought two for hats:
One for baby hats which you can tie under the chin and one for older ones with lots of variations.
Obviously these hats are great scrap projects and I have already made one for each of my children.
Although I have to admit that for the two big ones I had to cut into newly bought huge pieces of fabric, so not quite a scrap piece. I bought them to make onesies pyjamas to be ready for chilly nights but haven’t found the right pattern just yet.
I was really trying to convince my children to use more contrasting fabrics inside but they both went for the most boring possible option. Such a disappointment. I will never ever make anything for them. Ever. At least I am not going to ask them their opinion again. Ever.
I have also realised that actually a newborn will not like the hat to be tied under his chin, so I quickly made a new one without straps. Unfortunately there was no more blue jersey left (as I had been forced to use it for the pirate one!) so I ended up with another stripy fabric and in theory it can be worn both sides but I think the blue and red one might be too strong colours for the very newborn. I guess we will find out in a couple of days. 🙂 In any case, those stripy fabrics are the softest ones you could possibly imagine and I want to make myself a huge whole body suit out of it and spend all day in it 🙂 And I am so close to buy all of the existing colour combinations.
And as I really like those baby hats, I made quickly one for my baby niece.
The fabric had once been chosen by another niece for a shirt. But I think she wouldn’t find it “cool” so it is better used for a baby hat. It is lovely to see how these things travel through the family.
I have a feeling that I need to cover a few more ears 🙂
