October/November Orders!!

So, I've been busy since my little witch hat was posted. I've gotten a couple of orders and they look lovely, let me tell you!

So, in Colorado, a new style of headband/beanie/etc has been quite popular lately. Since they don't have a pattern for it and everyone is simply selling said items, I found a simple headband pattern (through Google, of course) and created my own. The hardest part was the red and yellow "C", but even that was pretty easy to figure out.
Colorado Flag
I finished one and was almost instantly commissioned for yet another one! And I plan on sending two of them off for Christmas gifts! After I'm done with those two, I'm going to work on getting a Texas Flag headband worked on. It'll pretty awesome, I hope. I'll post pictures of that one too when I'm finished with it!

I've also been working on a couple of headbands similar to the one below. An order for three of these, two with red flowers and one with a pink flower, along with the Colorado Headband came in. I need to finish one headband and then sew the last two flowers and single button on them before I ship them off soon. So easy to make and put together.
The iPad's camera isn't great with bad lighting...
The flower is red, I promise!
I also finished working on a nifty pattern by Stitch11 (pattern on link), and finally got them right. I bugged the wonderful, and patient, owner of this marvelous pattern so much, but I just wanted to make sure I got it right. And I did, so it was nice to finally get them done and just in time for the "cold" season to hit in Texas. Well, what we call the "cold" season. It's still pretty warm on random days (such as today!), so we take each day as it comes!
Lovely arm warmers!
Well, that's all I have for now. I'll be back later, hopefully this month, with all the pictures of the finished products I have made for my customers and even a few I have made for Christmas!

Until next time, then! :D
