About the hat model....

Since several of you commented or emailed about the freaky looking lips on the hat "model" in the prior post, I thought I would explain. I started making hats for Caps for a Cure about a year ago and it was very difficult to photograph them. So I purchased a styrofoam headform off ebay for about $5. Much easier to photograph as shown here and here.

But I have kids. Who love to mess with my stuff. My 16 year old thought the model was too pale and gave her a beautiful shade of cherry red lips. My 12 year old thought she also needed green eyes. Voila.... my styro head was turned into something out of a horror movie. And especially freakish looking for a baby hat.

Hehe, it's something I would've done too. Very nice "Rose McGowen" lips. Kissy kissy!!

That's too funny! I love the baby hat and sweater - they turned out just great. Glad you're still kniting :-)
