hi all, i hope this week has been good to you & that the weekend is even better for you!  :)  head on over to tami's ami's to check out all the coolest handmade stuffs!

 the first thing i got done this week was a headband.  it was a special request & i must say i will be making more of these.  not only was it really easy but i can think of lots of different options on colors & flowers.  :)
this it "standing" up facing front, like my props?  yarn, hook, junie b jones book....  hehehehe

grey headband with yellow buttons, so CUTE!!! 

so then i was asked to make a slouchy for a friend & i found the super cute gumdrop slouchy from gleeful things & it turned out so cute!!!  it's actually kinda reversible because i worked in BLO (back loops only) & so it gave the lined appearance on one side & then if you flip it inside out it looks normal.  :)  i love julie's stuff on gleeful things, check her out.  :)  i love the colors of the yarn but it would have been nicer if redheart made their regular stuff just a teensy bit softer!  the band was made with my fave, hobb lobb's i love this yarn.  :)
BLO side

non-BLO side :)  it would not cooperate so in laying flat this way so i had to fold it to get this pic.

oh i know sarah, i always ask the recipient to get me a 'model' shot so i can add it to my fb page & if i'm allowed to sell the product i use the 'modeled' pics. :) i'm about to get some photo work done on my stuff so i can put them up on my etsy, i'm no good with photog stuffs. you are so sweet! oh & the pattern, for the headband, i used is this one.

I love that headband, the band is such a cool shape and the buttons you chose are perfect. Great flower, too, I love the double-layered kind like that.

And yay for Gleeful Things! I love her patterns/creations, too, and the hat you made looks awesome. Cool colours and the BLO side has great texture.
