Hats and Overalls

I finished Grandpa's overalls. Sorry for the dark photos. It was really early when I took these photos this morning!

I decided that Grandpa should have a hat to wear. I pulled some white fabric over a marble that was the size of Grandpa's head. Then I sprayed it with hairspray and let it dry. I made the brim out of white seam binding glued over a strip of cardstock.

Grandpa even tried it on for size. He is such a good sport!

Now Grandpa has a Navy hat to wear. :D

I need to make him a new shirt. This is the one he was wearing when I got him. I'll use it as a pattern for the new one.

Grandma will soon have a new hat too! Kat the Hat lady is making a very special hat for her! I am so excited to get one of Kat's gorgeous hats! Can't wait to show it to you!

Hope you have a happy St. Patrick's Day! I'll be wearing the green, will you?

Grandpa looks great Kathi- Love the hooks on his overalls- very clever! Now he has no excuse not to get to work on that garage, huh? Or perhaps Grandma is saying her sewing room needs finishing first? Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I'm from a line of Mahoney's so I'm looking forward to my corn beef and cabbage tonight :)
