Here it is- completed! This is one of my ideas that lived in my sketchbook for several years waiting for inspiration to complete. The insanity hit very early one Saturday morning in September as I lay awake in the wee hours of the morning flooded with ideas and new techniques. I crept downstairs to the craft lab and began work. Several hours later when the babes awoke, the hat was complete (but not assembled).
Being inspired to design a new item is great but actually extracting the pattern from my brain is another story. That part takes the most drive of all. The lifeless, unassembled Smart Hat sat untouched and the pattern had been left cryptically scribbled on a torn piece of paper until just two days ago. Then, voila! Complete and now available for you to recreate in any color or size you wish.
