Ogre and Monster Hats - Hats and More Hats!

I love making hats.  They are so much fun and work up pretty quickly.  I finally got the ribbon picked out for four more cloche style hats. 

I got a ton of ribbon a few weeks ago using sales and coupons for Michaels and Joann.  Thank goodness they are accepting competitor coupons now. 

I really like the patterned ribbon for hats.  It just gives a little more....something.  I don't know but I like it!

These lovelies are now in my Etsy store!


This morning I finished my first Monster and Ogre baby hats.  They turned out so, so cute!  I wish I had a baby to wear the Ogre hat!  For now I have to settle for this (not so cute) doll.  Thanks Pam for letting me borrow him though.  He does make a better model than my balloons.  His head is a little smaller than newborn though so I end up having to roll up a bunch of the hats.  It works out pretty well though.   

I had seen pictures of the ogre hats from Dayna from On Distant Shores (http://daynasigl.blogspot.com) but her hat was knitted.  So I made up my own pattern in crochet. 
As for the Monster hat, I was inspired by Emily at The Boy Trifecta (http://www.theboytrifecta.com). but again kind of did my own thing following the pictures.  I'm finding that maybe I don't have the patience to follow patterns specifically.  I like to just create as I go.  Thank you ladies for the inspiration!
