Okay, I realize this is mostly knitting and light on the sewing, but I’m proud of myself that I designed my first handmade hat. It’s a modern minimalist slouch hat with a simple four-armed star at the back. Sewn closed at the top. Made out of very soft fingering weight alpaca wool, held double. :)
I created the romper worn on the mannequin based on 2 BurdaStyle patterns, described here: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/summer-sewing-challenge-retro-rocker-tonia-playsuit-with-cut-out-bustline
