I've Made Friday Week 25

I hope you are all having a good week!
I hope Friday is just as good!

I know I showed you some of the hats the other
day but here they are again if you hadn't seen them.
The hats I've made this week:
(patterns for purchase are linked to each picture)


                                Frog Hat Newborn                                      Frog Hat 3-6mnths
 Frog Hat 6-12 months
                           Meerkat Hat                                                       Bear Hat
Mouse Hat

Then there are the hats I've finished for me:

This is my folded hat. 
It was based slightly on the pattern I bought the other week
and didn't work for me.
It's difficult to see in this light but it has a folded part at the front.
I'm planning on finding a beautiful pin or button to go on the side
or maybe a flower.
If I decide I like it I might make it in another colour as well
so you can see the design better.

This is an eyelit cloche 
that I bought the pattern of from etsy.
The pattern also includes a flower & a brim if you want it as well 

And this is the Julia cloche hat
that I have finished :-)
I bought the pattern at Ravelry
I altered the pattern slightly as I wanted a removable brim
                        Without                                               With

I'm also thinking of making a white flower that I can attach if I want but I haven't decided yet.
By the way all the hats are in black as I am wearing a black and white dress.

This is a last minute add and I'm afraid the pictures aren't brilliant.
I just couldn't wait to show you.

My chicken hat.
Little Red already wanted it before I'd even finished it.


This is a quick update with better pictures

This week I read:
I've got a bit of a mixed review for this one.
The author is a good writer
& I am sure that a different story would be a better read.
The basics of the story is it's about 
a thirteen yr old boy called Aaron.
His life has changed for the worse since his dad died.
He overhears a bank robbing gang
and from there things take a turn for the worse.
Some people love the book
but I just couldn't accept the story as it just got 
more and more far-fetched!
The worse it got the angrier I got with the story.
I carried on reading as the writing is good
& I hate not finishing a book.
In some ways I wish I hadn't.
The ending was so sickly sweet & unbelievable!
Sorry but this isn't one for me.
I give this book 2 out of 5
Now it's your turn
It doesn't have to be crocheting
anything you've made is more than welcome!

  1. i made my first animal-themed hat! thanks for hosting!

  2. Love the chicken hat that's the way to display a hat. He looks like he's having a lot of fun wearing it.

    1. Thanks, yes he loved running round the conservatory pretending to be a chicken. He won't normally let me take a picture of him wearing my hats but he loved this one so much and wanted it so much he wanted more pictures taken :-)
