My goal this year is to finish at least *one* long term project that I’ve had sitting around for years. I’ll usually pick up one of these projects, work on it for a week, then put it down for the rest of the year. I never understood why us crafters have certain projects that we can’t seem to get through until an ungodly amount of time has passed. They aren’t super large projects either – I guess we get a bit bored and want to cast on (or start) the next thing.
I’ve always loved the idea of have a big floppy sun hat, but could never find one with a fabric band that I liked. I found this wild print hat at Charming Charlies for $20 and thought it would be a super easy project to rip off the leopard print band (ugh!) and replace it with something a little bit more “me”. Turns out I was right – it only took me about an hour to do, mostly because I had to iron my fabric a few times and figure out how to make the proper bow for you guys.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to finally finish a bunch of WIPs (works in progress) that I’ve had lying around. I’m really bad at starting really big projects and then putting them down! So far I have 8 projects of various sizes that *must* get finished before I can start anything new (hopefully)
I’m actually almost done with these guys! Hoping in another 2-3 weeks I can start wearing these guys before it finally gets warm. I used silver yarn in the index finger and thumb so I can use my iPhone without taking them off.
