Another fun request

I got another request to make a special hat for Christmas. One of my friends asked if I could make a Pikmin hat for her husband.

What I loved about this project was I got to try something new in regards to putting a character on a hat.  

The last time I did this for my Gomba Hat I used the fair isle technique to carry colors behind the project.  I wasn't able to do it exactly right for that project but I thought I could try it again.  Well it still didn't work because I ended up with a very small hat.  Gotta figure out the tension!

So I thought for a bit and decided I could just "embroider" or cross stitch the characters ontop of the already made hat! 

It worked out perfectly and the hat turned out great!


  1. Oh my gosh!!! That is soooo awesome!!

  2. Very cute! Wishing you all the best in the New Year!
