Pink Hats for little sugarplums!

When my youngest sister was little--in the 80s---she was so into strawberry shortcake!  I am enjoying the resurgence of that little cutie!  So I got this flannel to sew up into little blankets, and couldn't resist making a cupcake hat to go with the aqua, pink and reds in it.  The little cherries on top are from a vintage curtain that I had already recycled!

Here's another hat I actually made awhile back and hadn't been inspired for the flower...Then I found this kitten-soft pink yarn...I mean SO soft...I've made up a couple of these triple flowers...they kinda look like peonies to me.  The white yarn was being is corn and cotton.  When I think of corn fiber, I don't think soft!!!!  But this stuff is softer than most cottons.  I just loved it and bought everything they had left.   The flannels in both pictures are for little baby kimono lounge sets I am thinking...they are so sweet!

The third new hat I have made lately is like another one but people were asking for all pink roses (why not?!)  and this one is gorgeous with the Christmas Rose outfit I made.  

I'm really loving how the pants turned first use of crinkled seam binding on my clothing!!  Well, that's really about all I have been up to lately---sewing for the holidays!  You can check out my etsy shop by clicking on the side links if you want to see more.                     XXOO.....Kathi
