Hats Take Flight!

Here are the prototypes for two new aviator style hats I have been working on this week for the Pumpkinhaus. I drafted up a couple of patterns and I must say, I am happy with the results so far! These are just pics of the hats ~ plain ~ I will be embellishing theses babies with all sorts of finery! For now, they are lined with fleece (it is still mighty cold out there!) and have all sorts of fine cotton fabrics (vintage and new..... some designer! who .... me? Use designer fabrics..... yup.). Bonnet style Aviator Hats!
The Pixie Flight Hat
You gotta wear pointy hats.... makes you smart dontcha know!
The Amelia Flight Hat
I named Rowan Amelia after Ms. Earhart. It is only fitting to make a hat after her too.

I need to ask my brother if I can hire Madison for some modeling.... she needs a makeover bad!

The Gnome Hat for You - Not Your Kids

I have this little gnome that lives in the woods behind my house you see.... it took some cunning and timing, but I trapped him while he was stealing eggs out of a blue jays nest! I had to bribe him with sweet ambrosia and he gave up the pattern to me whilst in a drunken state. You asked for it folks, and I aim to deliver!
Bonnet style hat with a cute little gnome peak and ties under the chin.

This hat is so incredibly soft, it is knit with Lambs Pride 85% wool/15% mohair. Soft and strong. Lamb's Pride is one of the few domestically produced wool yarns made right here in the United States. It will last through many, many winters.

colors available:
  • Deep Red
  • Lotus Pink
  • Rust Orange
  • Mustard Yellow
  • Kiwi Green
  • Peacock Blue
