Girly beanie #2

Filed under: carmen, knitting, projects — Jana @ 7:36 am

Here is the second attempt at the beanie. This one fits better, but still a little big. I like the shape of this one more. I haven’t decided if I should put some flowers or other embellishments on it or not…What do you think? Maybe a little lavender flower, or a tan one? Or maybe a pom-pom on top? There are just so many possibilities.

Am I abusing my rights to use my child as a model for all my various projects?… that is one of the perks of being a mom, right?

  2. I freakin’ love it. If I ever have a girl, you will have to make one for me. A flower would be cute, but I almost like the simplicity of it. I actually think this picture of Carmen is gorgeous. Kids are so precious, aren’t they? And no, I don’t think it is bad to use Carmen as a model for you. I think she will like the fact that there are so many various pictures of her in cute homemade projects.

  3. so cute! I think a purple flower would be cute, or maybe 2 over the ears like the last one.

    You are seriously so talented.

  5. I love this one! You should find some cool buttons and sew them in a clump (like on your green cap). That’d be ultra hot!

  6. I like Chantel’s button idea. Or maybe just one matching flower?

    I love the fit of this one on Carmen – I think that fitting a little big is perfect.

  8. That is so ridiculously cute! She looks so good in that color and I like the fit too. Brenden just yelled

  9. […] get displayed. It is really fun… not to mention people throw down some serious cash. The beanies I knit went for 70 bucks a pop…can you believe that! I was actually a little sick to my […]
