Following on from Hedwina’s obsession last week with Viking Helmets, this week she has turned her attentions to children’s character hats, namely Po from The Teletubbies and Bing Bunny. Strictly speaking they are too small for her but she has been very helpful modeling them for photos, particularly when I was personalising one of them which involved me sticking her with several pins. It all worked out for the best in the end though and one little girl will soon be the proud owner of her own Po hat, complete with matching Tubbiefeet.
I’ve had a lot of fun designing and making these hats, just in time for early Christmas shoppers and have been writing up the patterns ready for sale in the shop early next year.
If you have a little Teletubbie or Bing Bunny fan that deserves a warm and smooshy hat and boots for Christmas, keep an eye out for shop updates which should hopefully include Laa Laa and Tinky Winky sets. If I can find the right colour green yarn, Dipsy will follow!
