Hi again. Back so soon!!
Just a short update. I mentioned in my last post that I have a current obsession with hats – specifically baby hats – and I’m currently making other peoples patterns and also trying a few of my own designs. But I’ve come across a bit of a snag. They are really difficult to photograph. They don’t look great laying flat and a gorgeous, photogenic baby is not always on hand!
So I pondered this for a while before the lightbulb went off as I remembered seeing adult hats displayed on polystyrene head mannequin thingies. Just the job, I thought, firing up google and searching the web. And searching… And searching… I don’t think they make polystyrene head mannequin thingies in a baby size. Or a child size for that matter. I could only find some very scary doll head type things. Not what I was looking for at all.
So as the world wide web wasn’t very forthcoming I started thinking about how to make one myself. How hard can it be, I thought… And as it turns out, it wasn’t hard at all.
So if you need a hat mannequin for a baby’s hat – from 6 months old – then I’ve listed the pattern for free in the patterns tab above. I’m sure some of you will find it useful.
