Hello, Mimi here!!
Josefina came up to me yesterday, and made a very direct request. "Can you please make us some new hats??"
"But we have hats!" I objected.
"Barely." she muttered.
Truthfully, we do not have a lot of hats. The picture to the right depicts the extent of our hats. A faded green baseball cap, a floral hat from a large Kelly doll, and a red fleece hat.
Josefina had a point.
"All right..." I relented. "I guess I'll help you out."
She beamed, and was about to say something, when Kit ran in.
"Hey can I have a hat too?" she asked impetuously.
Josefina looked slightly irritated, but didn't say anything.
I agreed to their pleas, and went to work on some hats!
I made their newsboy caps from a pattern of Joan Hinds.
I think they turned out pretty well!
The pattern is pretty easy to sew. It is found in her book, "Sew Today's Fashions for 18" dolls".
It does take a while to cut out the pieces, but that can be said of any pattern!
Both Kit and Josefina were thrilled by their new hats, and immediately put them on, after thanking me profusely.
As always, thanks for looking!!
