Christmas hats....HO! HO! HO!.....


I thought that you might like to see some of the Christmas hats that my Year 9's finished this week......
All of the white strips have been stitched on separately. I bought some fur to go around the hat and with the left-overs we made some fur pompoms.

The lettering has been cut out by hand and carefully stitched on. This hat turned out really well indeed and with only verbal assistance from me and having taught her for 3 years on the trot, she had gained the confidence and skill to make this herself.

This hat shows the fur pompoms that we made. This hat also has fabric trees stitched on to the front.

Now, when I saw the final design drawing for this hat I was a little worried that he would get a little bored of cutting all of the squares out. However, he did cut 24+ squares out in a lesson, and started to sew them together. It has turned out brilliantly and I am doubly pleased as he is also in my tutor group.

We also made some blue Christmas hats which turned out very well. I found some snow flake sequins which were carefully stitched on and the fur really has finished these hats off really well. I shall certainly get some more for next year.

Lots of sparkle!!


Just for good measure, a pink one too. With silver sequins hand stitched down the side.

HO HO HO everyone. What do you think?

It is mobile phone cases next.....

Wow these hats are great, my favorite is the patchwork one. My daughter is in year 9 and they have done felting and made a beanie. Haven't seen it yet as it is being assessed this week. I'll look forward to seeing the mobile phone cases.

what a good idea for year 9s. I can imagine it's hard to find something fun, especially for the boys. The hats are great - the kids should be really pleased!
