My oh my its been a while. Lots of work and unpacking over the past few months. I did get a chance to get some Holiday sewing done. I decided to try my hand at making fun beanies. I couldn't find a pattern so I freehanded one. It took a little altering but I finally made one that worked out.
The first try left me with a very tight fit. Granted the hats I wanted to make were for an 11yr old. I hope they fit!
This was the first try:
My project was inspired by a picture the munchkin doodle had on his FB page. Its a Vampire Bunny. He seemed to dig it a lot so I decided to make a beanie and stuffie of the Vampire Bunny.
Project time: 5hrs
- The Bernina B330
-Braided black yarn
The Stuffie almost done:
The finished beanie!!
The two finished pieces:
Hopefully I'll get a picture of him in it soon.
I'm not sure that I remember ever sewing really thick layers before but the Bernina really handled them well. I was shocked at how thick the layers of fleece and felt got. I had pondered doing some free hand embroidery but decided that will wait til the next project.
Hope everyone is having a great Holiday season!! Best Wishes for the New Year. Happy Stitching.
