frozen hat

My daughter is a HUGE frozen fan (along with every other 3 year old girl alive right now it seems!!). So I wanted to make her winter hat frozen inspired. I didn't want it to be over the top frozen but just subtle enough that she would know that it was frozen while to the rest of the world (or at least anyone who didn't know her frozen obsession) it was just a cute winter hat.

I chose to make the main hat a white earflap in chunky yarn, and then added Elsa-inspired yellow braids and a turquoise snowflake detail on the front. She LOVED it, especially the braids and has loved wearing it all winter. 

The pattern is my own pattern. I do not currently sell this hat or this pattern in my etsy shop but would consider it if there was interest.

a family of hats

A dear friend requested some earflap hats from my etsy shop for her 4 kids for Christmas. She has two beautiful girls who are 6 and 5 and two sweet little boys who are 3 and 1. We were close friends when her girls were little and then they moved away so I am yet to meet the two little guys. 

For the girls she chose two styles that I already had in the shop and for the boys she switched things up a little requesting this hat but with a red stripe instead of blue for the older boy and this hat for the baby but without the braids (she thought he would find them annoying). I think they turned out great!

I love making custom orders so if you would like to switch things up from the styles I have available just drop me a line!
