Hat designs come to me often, but not all of them work out, some of them go back to the drawing board, some of them are just too darn hard.
Meet little Theodore, a new member of the dover & madden family. This little hat came about as a mix of a couple of others that I had previously worked on and put down. Anyway, Teddie has a bit of a retro vibe, I think I wore something similar myself in the early 1970's as a bub....again taking inspiration from my own baby photos sometimes works.
I'm just mucking around with the sizes, I'm trying to do a larger size, but sometimes you just lose the cuteness once they start getting into bigger sizes, but I'll give it my best shot. I'm using new season Baby Cashmerino colours for the prototypes.....bright yellow, bright emerald green, and I may even go a sunshine orange. We'll see.
These little hats should start filtering into my Etsy store in the next month. The pattern will follow later on in the year.
Can you see your little one wearing Teddie?
