By far, the most common object that I crochet is hats. It's not the only thing that I crochet. I have made scarves, mittens, diaper covers, headbands, goggles, pincushions, fingerless gloves, bags, costumes, booties, decor, and even a baby top. But, I would guess that 75% or more of my projects are hats or include hats. I have some sets that include leg warmers or diaper covers or booties. One set has a Santa hat and a stocking that you can photograph a newborn in. Another set has a turtle shell drape--another photo prop. The one I am working on now has a pink fireman's helmet, a diaper cover with suspenders and cute fireman boots. I have a gracious model when they are complete--the baby of a firefighter my husband works with. Some hats I have for sale on my Etsy shop and some I haven't yet decided to post in my shop yet, though they can be found on my website. Mostly I make them for my kids or for photo props or as gifts. They do make adorable props! And soon, I will be partnering with the ladies from my church to make hats for the homeless, the childrens' homes, and cancer patients. I am very excited about this. I have wanted to make items for charity for some time. But, I am only one person and one hat at a time can only make so much difference. But, a whole group of ladies can make a bigger difference!
What's your favorite hat? Do you have any ideas for my next hat project? I am contemplating Mike and Sully hats (Monsters Inc. and Monsters University).
